ROSES 2013 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Clarification to Appendix A.33, NASA DATA FOR OPERATION AND ASSESSMENT

Description: The text of Appendix A.33, NASA DATA FOR OPERATION AND ASSESSMENT had been changed in many small ways, the most significant of which is specifying that for proposals on Operational Short-term Weather Prediction not just paid investigators but even unpaid collaborators from SPoRT and Marshall Space Flight Center are excluded. Independently, the same restriction applies to proposals on JCSDA from the specified JCSDA partner organizations. The due dates for proposals remains unchanged at May 15, 2013. Deleted text is struck through and new text is bold.

Appendix A.33, NASA Data for Operation and Assessment  offers investigators an opportunity to increase the impact of NASA data by transitioning the data and algorithms into the operational environment in two areas:  Operational weather prediction and ecological models.  In addition, because of the recent priority to further constrain the Earth system models using NASA data, this solicitation offers an opportunity to research and develop data, algorithms, and methodologies for the validation, verification, and the overall assessment of the accuracy and deficiency of Earth system models.  For ecosystem and ecosystem-climate models, there is also a recent priority to further constrain the ecological forecasts and models using NASA data, this solicitation offers an opportunity to research and develop data, algorithms, and methodologies for the validation, verification, and the overall assessment of the accuracy and deficiency of ecological models, particularly in support of inclusion of ecological observations in IPCC-type assessments and in ecosystem resource management and decision support.
