Geosciences and Social & Behavioral Sciences Take a Hit in Funding Bill

Geocognition research sits smack in the middle of those two research areas – good thing I recently received word of funding on two small-ish grants. The bills take on how NSF peer reviews proposals is also VERY troubling. Here’s hoping the bill is vastly reformed before passing into legislation.
