ROSES-12 Amendment 13 – Proposal Due Date Change for The Outer Planets Research Program

The Outer Planets Research (OPR) program supports diverse scientific investigations that contribute to the understanding of the outer Solar System, including the giant planets, their satellites, and smaller solid bodies including comets, asteroids, and Kuiper Belt objects. The program includes both data analysis from NASA missions and fundamental research.

The due date for proposals to Appendix C.7, the Outer Planets Research Program, has been delayed to November 2, 2012, so as not to overlap with the 44th Annual Meeting of the Division for Planetary Sciences of the American Astronomical Society. Notices of intent to propose are still requested by August 24, 2012.

On or about August 10, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012” (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012

Tables 2 and 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA will be updated to reflect this change.

ROSES-12 Amendment – Terrestrial Ecology

ROSES-12 Amendment 12: Final Text for ROSES-12 Appendix A.4, Terrestrial Ecology.

NASA Terrestrial Ecology research addresses changes in Earth’s carbon cycle and ecosystems using space-based observations.  This solicitation requests proposals for 1) data set development in support of arctic-boreal ecosystem vulnerability research to be conducted in a future Terrestrial Ecology Program-sponsored field campaign, 2) data set development to meet specific priority needs of the NASA terrestrial ecological community, and 3) successor studies in the areas of remote sensing science and remote sensing methods development that offer to significantly advance the results of prior NASA Terrestrial Ecology research.

Proposals to this program will be taken via a two-step proposal process. This means that the Notice of Intent is replaced by a required Step-1 proposal and the Title and Principal Investigator are binding. The three-page Step-1 proposal will be used to conduct a preliminary evaluation, which will result in full proposals being either encouraged or discouraged. See Section 4 of Appendix A.4 for details.

This amendment presents the final text for this Appendix A.4 Terrestrial Ecology, which replaces in its entirety the placeholder text that was released with ROSES 2012. Step-1 proposals are due September 18, 2012 and Step-2 proposals are due January 8, 2013.

On or about July 30, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012” (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012.

ROSES-12 Amendment 10: Development and Testing of Potential Indicators For The National Climate Assessment

NASA is a major contributor to global climate and related environmental assessment activities, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Climate Assessments and the World Meteorological Organization/United Nations Environment Programme (WMO/UNEP) Ozone Assessment Reports. NASA has made a similarly significant contribution to the U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA), a central component of the 2012-2022 U.S. Global Change Research Program’s Strategic Plan, and intends to continue supporting the NCA.

Indicators are anticipated to be an important component of future NCAs. These indicators are intended to provide a clear and concise way of communicating to the NCA audiences about not only status and trends of physical drivers of the climate system, but also the ecological and socioeconomic impacts, vulnerabilities, and responses to those drivers. This ROSES element solicits contributions to enhance NASA’s participation in future NCAs by encouraging the developing and testing of potential indicators that address the needs expressed in the NCA vision for a national system of indicators and that largely draw from NASA-produced data and/or modeling products.

Notices of Intent are requested by August 3, 2012, and proposals are due by October 5, 2012

On or about July 2, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012” (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity home page at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012 .

ROSES-11 Amendment 42: Cancellation of preproposal workshop for the Technology Development for the Physics of the Cosmos (TPCOS) science area from Appendix D.8, Strategic Astrophysics Technology

The Strategic Astrophysics Technology (SAT) program is focused on the advancement of those technologies judged to be most critical to making substantive near-term progress on the recommendations of the 2010 Decadal Survey of Astronomy and Astrophysics. The SAT Program is designed to support the maturation of technologies whose feasibility has already been demonstrated (i.e., TRL 3), to the point where they can be incorporated into NASA flight missions (TRL 6-7).

This amendment is issued to announce the cancellation of the informational preproposal workshop for TPCOS SAT proposals, announced on page D.8-10. The proposers are strongly encouraged to read the SAT proposal guidelines very carefully and in their entirety before submitting their proposals.

The due date for proposals remains unchanged at March 23, 2012.

Further information about this Amendment to ROSES-11 and the SAT program element is available from Rita Sambruna, Astrophysics Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546-0001; Telephone: (202) 358-2166; Email: rita.m.sambruna@nasa.gov

ROSES-12 Amendment 2: Delay of proposal Due Date for Appendix A.16, Atmospheric Composition: Modeling and Analysis Program (ACMAP)

NASA’s research for furthering our understanding of atmospheric composition is geared to providing an improved prognostic capability for such issues (e.g., the recovery of stratospheric ozone and its impacts on surface ultraviolet radiation, the evolution of greenhouse gases and their impacts on climate, and the evolution of tropospheric ozone and aerosols and their impacts on climate and air quality). The modeling and analysis effort is generally aimed at the questions of tropospheric air quality and oxidation efficiency, pollution sourced aerosol where they impact cloud properties, stratospheric chemistry and ozone depletion, and chemistry/climate interactions.

This amendment delays the proposal due date for Appendix A.16 Atmospheric Composition: Modeling and Analysis Program (ACMAP). This will give more time to proposers and better align the selection timeframe with the availability of new fiscal year funds.

The new proposal due date for Appendix A.16 ACMAP, is now October 1, 2012. Notices of Intent are not requested for this program. Table 2 and Table 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA will be updated to reflect these changes.

On or about March 12, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012” (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012

ROSES-12 Amendment 3: Due Dates Changed for Appendix A.20, Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) science team

The Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) science team seeks investigations related to satellite observations of precipitation using measurements from, but not limited to, the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) launched in November 1997 and investigations related to future precipitation missions, such as the next generation constellation-based Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Mission to be launched in 2014. This program supports scientific investigations in three research categories: (1) development, evaluation, and validation of TRMM and GPM retrieval algorithms, (2) development of methodologies for improved application of satellite measurements, and (3) the use of satellite and ground measurements for physical process studies to gain a better understanding of the global water cycle, climate, and weather; and concomitant improvements in numerical models on cloud resolving to climate scales.

For Appendix A.20, Precipitation Measurement Missions (PMM) science team, Notices of Intent are due April 30, 2012, and proposals are due June 29, 2012.

On or about March 12, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012” (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012

Table 2 and Table 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA will be updated to reflect these changes.
