On or about May 31, 2011, NASA will release Amendment 10, which presents the final text for Appendix A.34, Earth Science Applications: Water Resources , and replaces the prior text in its entirety.
The objective of this solicitation is to select applied research and applications projects in the area of water resources with a focus on drought-related topics and drought management solutions. Successful projects will advance organizations’ use and application of Earth science observations and models in decision-making associated with water resource management for drought. The projects should include all relevant NASA satellite mission observations and can include data products from non-NASA satellites, including foreign satellites and commercial products if used in conjunction with some NASA capabilities.
This amendment presents the final text for Appendix A.34, which replaces the prior text in its entirety. The changes include: The priority topics in Section 1-5 have been substantially revised and expanded. Please note that this program element will be implemented in two Stages. Twelve month Feasibility-Stage 1 projects will be awarded with an Option for three year Decisions-Stage 2 projects to be awarded at the end of Stage 1. Note that the due dates have been deferred: Notices of Intent to propose are now due July 1, 2011 and proposals are due September 30, 2011.
