NASA's Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry program focuses on describing, understanding, and predicting the biological and biogeochemical regimes of the upper ocean as determined by remote observation of aquatic optical properties from space, aircraft, and other suborbital platforms. NASA’s Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry program utilizes remotely sensed observations from land, ocean, and atmosphere, as well as field studies and campaigns, and interdisciplinary data assimilation and modeling efforts to better understand the oceans’ role in the Earth System. NASA is expanding the Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry program in the following areas: (i) Beaufort and Chukchi Seas – Field Campaign, (ii) Beaufort and Chukchi Seas - Data Synthesis, Assimilation, Modeling, and (iii) Biological and Biogeochemical Impacts of Melting Ice in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. The proposal due date remains June 1, 2009.
On or about April 8, 2009, Amendment No. 4 to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2009" (NNH09ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select “Solicitations” then “Open Solicitations” then “NNH09ZDA001N”).
Amendment 4 expands proposal opportunities in Appendix A.3 Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry in the following areas: (i) Beaufort and Chukchi Seas – Field Campaign, (ii) Beaufort and Chukchi Seas - Data Synthesis, Assimilation, Modeling, and (iii) Biological and Biogeochemical Impacts of Melting Ice in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas.
Many changes have been made to the text of program element A.3. Added text appears as bold, deleted text as strikethrough. Please read the full text of the amended call for Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry.
