Colleagues:

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Ocean Sciences (OCE) in the Directorate of Geosciences (GEO) wishes to remind the research community that the NSF Regional Plan for the R/V MARCUS G. LANGSETH released in 2021 remains in effect. NSF will accept proposals to use the R/V LANGSETH in the Atlantic and adjacent seas in the 2022-2024 timeframe. Per the general guidance for requesting ship time on Global-class ships, Principal Investigators should submit proposals at least 18 months prior to the requested start date of the cruise. Final schedules will be determined collaboratively between the PIs, operators, UNOLS, environmental compliance authorities, and NSF.

Ship schedules depend on many factors, and the pandemic has caused delays and rescheduling throughout the U.S. Academic Research Fleet. The schedule may shift if there are unanticipated problems.

Any questions may be directed as follows:
