Appendix A.13: Atmospheric Composition, Cloud, Climate Coupling Study (SEAC4RS) solicits proposals for participation in two airborne campaigns to be conducted in 2012 to investigate atmospheric processes related to deep convection, chemistry/photochemistry, aerosols and clouds in mid-latitude and tropical environments. Multiple comprehensively instrumented aircraft are required to accomplish this research. NASA and the National Science Foundation plan to collaborate to conduct two synergistic campaigns designed to sample the atmosphere in two very different convective environments: summer mid-latitude continental North America and fall tropical Southeast Asia. Through this call, the Upper Atmosphere Research Program, the Radiation Sciences Program, the Tropospheric Chemistry Program, and the Atmospheric Composition Modeling and Analysis Program seek campaign leadership, instrumentation teams, satellite teams and campaign support/data analysis teams for participation in these studies.
Amendment 21 releases the final version of the text of Appendix A.13, which replaces the draft text in its entirety. Notices of Intent to propose are not requested and Proposals are due February 1, 2011.
Questions concerning this program may be addressed to Hal Maring - (202) 358-1679.
