ROSES 2013 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 26: A.11, OVWST proposal due date delayed to 11/15/2013

Description: Appendix A.11, Ocean Vector Winds Science Team proposal due date has been delayed to November 15, 2013 because of the Government shutdown.

The Ocean Vector Winds Science Team (OVWST) supports the analysis and interpretation of ocean vector winds and other applications derived from Earth-observing missions carrying scatterometers and polarimetric radiometers.  NASA launched the QuikSCAT satellite instrumented with the SeaWinds scatterometer on June 19, 1999. This instrument is a copy of the dual conically-scanning pencil beam Ku-band SeaWinds scatterometer that flew on JAXA’s Midori-2 mission. QuikSCAT is no longer fully operational, but still collects Ku-band backscatter measurements to assist in calibration of other Ku-band scattterometers
The proposal due date for Appendix A.11, Ocean Vector Winds Science Team had been October 31, 2013, but is being delayed to allow extra time for proposers furloughed during the Government shutdown. The new due date for proposals is Friday, November 15, 2013.
On or about October 18, 2013, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2013" (NNH13ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
