ASLA 09-10: NSF Releases its FY 2010 Budget Request
****************************************************

Very positive numbers were awarded to the geoscience community this
morning when the President's budget request for the National Science
Foundation (NSF) was released.  This budget request has been sent from
the President to Congress, which, after some adjustment, Congress will
need to approve before it is enacted.

NSF Director Dr. Arden Bement announced the agency's proposed
$7.045B budget request for FY10, which is an increase of $555M or 8.5
percent with the Geosciences receiving $909M.  The new funding "will
support many more researchers, students, post-doctoral fellows and
technicians contributing to the innovation enterprise.  "The additional $555
million would increase funding for major investments in the scientific
infrastructure, research endeavors and human capital."  The FY10 Budget
also fulfills the President's commitment to triple the number of NSF's
Graduate Research Fellowships to 3000 by 2013."  A summary breakdown
with certain program highlights are as follows:

Total NSF budget:  $7.045B, +$555M or 8.5%

Climate Change Science Program (CCSP):  $300M, +$80M or 36.4%

GEOSCIENCES: $909M
* Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences:  $269.16M, +$24.56M or ten
percent (Key investments include "$12M to support new Climate Research
activity, with emphasis on advanced computation and modeling".)

in both research and education.  The "principle goals are to develop
innovative means to initiate and support geoscience education [and] attract
underrepresented groups to careers in the geosciences.")
   o  Research and Education Grants: $91.92M, +$32.21M or 53.9%
