ROSES 2012 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 21: New Opportunity via Appendix C.27, the MAVEN Participating Scientist Program

Description: Amendment 21 releases a new opportunity in Appendix C.27, the MAVEN Participating Scientist Program. Notices of Intent are requested by January 11, 2013, and proposals are due by March 1, 2013.

Amendment 21 releases a new call  in ROSES 2012 via Amendment 2. This call is for investigations in the Participating Scientist program to enhance the scientific return from the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission (http://lasp.colorado.edu/home/maven/) by broadening participation in the mission, augmenting the existing science team to include new investigations that broaden and/or complement the funded investigations, thus maximizing the contribution of the mission to the scientific understanding and future exploration of Mars. The second and equally important goal of this opportunity is to increase the number of scientists supporting mission planning and execution. While a large fraction of the planned observations will be planned in advance, real-time response to a brand-new set of observations is expected to result in an ongoing requirement for significant replanning. Additional investigators will contribute substantially to enhanced understanding of the data and to improved planning stimulated by the observations. Participating Scientist proposals can include investigations that are instrument specific or involve multiple instrumentsand, in all cases, must include bothscience analysis and a commitment to participate in operations planning in order to be considered.
 
Notices of Intent are requested by January 11, 2013, and proposals are due by March 1, 2013.
