Mountain Building Processes in Four Dimensions (MB-4D) SPP 2017
Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
The Senate of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) has established a new Priority Programme entitled "Mountain Building Processes in Four Dimensions" (SPP 2017). The programme is designed to run for six years; the present call invites proposals for the first three-year funding period.

Scope: This Priority Programme forms an integral part of the international AlpArray mission to image the structure of the Alps from their surface down to several hundred kilometres depth in the mantle. It tests the hypothesis that reorganisations of Earth's mantle during the collision of tectonic plates have both immediate and long-lasting effects on crustal motion, fault kinematics, earthquake distribution and surface evolution. It challenges conventional wisdom by recognising that linked processes between Earth's surface and mantle beneath mountain belts can only be explained by integrating 3D imaging of the entire crust-mantle system with geologic observations and modelling to enable us to look both backwards and forwards in time, the 4th dimension. This requires a multi- and interdisciplinary approach that integrates geophysics, tectonics, petrology, geochronology, basin- and surface studies.

Priority Programme roundtable meeting: A meeting to present, discuss and coordinate research proposals will be held at the Bildungsforum Potsdam on 5/6 July 2016 (details to be announced). Please register for the workshop by 1 June 2016 with lerch@gfz-potsdam.de with a copy to juliane.rohlmann@fu-berlin.de. Potential applicants are expected to fill out 1-page forms with a summary of their proposals no later than 24 June 2016 (available at the SPP 2017 website) and make a concise (5 minutes, 3 slides) presentation of their proposal.

Submission of proposals: The anticipated starting date of the projects is in the spring of 2017. Proposals must be submitted in English following the DFG guidelines via the DFG's electronic submission system "elan" (select "SPP 2017"). Please make sure that all project applicants register at least two weeks before the submission deadline. In addition to submitting your proposal to the DFG, please send an electronic version (pdf format) to the coordinator, Mark Handy (mark.handy@fu-berlin.de). Deadline for proposal submission is 26 October 2016.
