This amendment establishes a new program element in Appendix A.41 entitled “The Science of Terra and Aqua.” This new program element solicits proposals to undertake significant studies through the use of data and derived products from two of the Earth Observing System (EOS) satellites, namely Terra and Aqua, and their measurement sensors. It represents a continuation of the research aspects of the EOS Instrument Teams for these satellites, emphasizes new opportunities for scientists to analyze and exploit EOS data, as well as develop new products by combining multi-sensor and multi-platform data or by developing an innovative approach to data retrievals. This solicitation offers investigators an opportunity to conduct integrative research projects using the new data and products resulting from these satellites, and to become involved in the utilization of EOS data to provide answers to NASA's Earth Science Research questions.
Notices of Intent to propose are due January 28, 2010. Proposals are due March 25, 2010.
