This amendment presents final text for Appendix A.32 entitled “Air Quality Applied Sciences Team.” This replaces the prior text in its entirety. This program is initiating Applied Sciences teams to focus on key applications-oriented challenges and critical data products needed by the applied community and end users. The teams will address topical sets of applied topics that require a sustained, coordinated, and targeted applied research investment and will identify specific data products and provide applications-oriented feedback to Earth science research. The Applied Sciences Teams are analogous to the mission Science Teams. In general, these teams will contribute to the fundamental understanding of how Earth science can be scaled and applied to serve society. These teams will contribute to the body of knowledge on methods to enable institutions to apply new types of data and information in traditional processes and decision-making activities.
Notices of Intent are not requested. Proposals are due March 26, 2010.
