The Paleoclimate program aims to understand past climate variability and its drivers, providing insights into present climate and future trends. It supports research on observational and modeling studies, as well as the development of new paleoclimate records. The program collaborates with other divisions in the Geoscience Directorate for the annual P4CLIMATE competition, offering additional funding opportunities. Researchers are advised to consult with program directors to determine the suitability of their proposals for either program.
