National Science Foundation Twenty-Fourth Annual Report for Fiscal Year 1974.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
This twenty-fourth annual report of the National Science Foundation (NSF) describes the research project support activities, national and international programs, research applications, and science education studies for the fiscal year 1974. It also includes appendices and a statement by H. Guyford Stever, the director of NSF. Scientific research project support supports and strengthens fundamental research in all fields of science. Approximately 13,000 proposals were acted on in 1974. One of the activities under the direction of the National and International Programs Directorate was the establishment of an Office for Climate Dynamics. In 1974 the Research Applications Directorate completed the third year of operations of its RANN--Research Applied to National Needs--program. During this time RANN was pointed sharply toward national problems in energy, environment and productivity. The report lists the major objectives of the Foundation's fiscal year 1974 science education improvement activities. (LS)
