Appendix A.36 seeks proposals for individual members of a new Applied Sciences Team to support the SERVIR program in developing science applications for international development through the use of Earth observations. SERVIR is a regional visualization and monitoring system using Earth observations to support environmental management, climate adaptation, and disaster response in developing countries. Team members will conduct applications research, development, and testing, and participate in capacity building and rapid response activities to enhance SERVIR efforts in developing countries. Team members will work on individual projects they proposed, as well as in ad hoc subteams for special problems. The overall objective of this team is to generate and broaden the base of applications of Earth observations serving key needs in SERVIR regions and supporting U.S. international development interests.
Proposals are due October 25, 2011.
