Proposal for Pamir summer 99 trip Welcome to the NSF proposal for continued work in the Pamir. Summer 96 and summer 99 was spent in the field. There are two main links: the first to the Project Plans page and the second to the Project Summary page. The project summary is a much shorter version of the goals report. Click below to be sent to either one.
