ROSES 2012 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 10: New Call for proposals in Appendix A.47 entitled Indicators for the National Climate Assessment

Description: There is a new opportunity in ROSES 2012: Appendix A.47, Development and Testing of Potential Indicators For The National Climate Assessment. Notices of Intent are requested by August 3, 2012, and proposals are due by October 5, 2012.

NASA is a major contributor to global climate and related environmental assessment activities, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Climate Assessments and the World Meteorological Organization/United Nations Environment Programme (WMO/UNEP) Ozone Assessment Reports. NASA has made a similarly significant contribution to the U.S. National Climate Assessment (NCA), a central component of the 2012-2022 U.S. Global Change Research Program's Strategic Plan, and intends to continue supporting the NCA.
 
Indicators are anticipated to be an important component of future NCAs. These indicators are intended to provide a clear and concise way of communicating to the NCA audiences about not only status and trends of physical drivers of the climate system, but also the ecological and socioeconomic impacts, vulnerabilities, and responses to those drivers. This ROSES element solicits contributions to enhance NASA's participation in future NCAs by encouraging the developing and testing of potential indicators that address the needs expressed in the NCA vision for a national system of indicators and that largely draw from NASA-produced data and/or modeling products.
