The goals of NASA’s Terrestrial Ecology research are to improve understanding of the structure and function of global terrestrial ecosystems, their interactions with the atmosphere and hydrosphere, and their role in the cycling of the major biogeochemical elements and water.
This program of research addresses impacts to and vulnerability of ecosystems and the carbon cycle to global environmental changes; development and utilization of new and/or multi-sensor remote sensing analysis approaches to estimate important ecosystem and carbon cycle properties; coastal ecosystem impacts of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill through analysis of NASA airborne data; and follow-on studies that advance the results of prior NASA Terrestrial Ecology research.
This amendment presents the final text for Appendix A.4, which replaces the prior text in its entirety.
Notices of Intent to propose are now due August 17, 2011, and proposals are due October 28, 2011.
