Amendment 12: Final Text and two Stage Submission for Appendix A.4, Terrestrial Ecology.
NASA Terrestrial Ecology research addresses changes in Earth’s carbon cycle and ecosystems using space-based observations. This solicitation requests proposals for 1) data set development in support of arctic-boreal ecosystem vulnerability research to be conducted in a future Terrestrial Ecology Program-sponsored field campaign, 2) data set development to meet specific priority needs of the NASA terrestrial ecological community, and 3) successor studies in the areas of remote sensing science and remote sensing methods development that offer to significantly advance the results of prior NASA Terrestrial Ecology research.
Proposals to this program will be taken via a two-step proposal process. This means that the Notice of Intent is replaced by a required Step-1 proposal and the Title and Principal Investigator are binding. The three-page Step-1 proposal will be used to conduct a preliminary evaluation, which will result in full proposals being either encouraged or discouraged. See Section 4 of Appendix A.4 for details.
This amendment presents the final text for this Appendix A.4 Terrestrial Ecology, which replaces in its entirety the placeholder text that was released with ROSES 2012. Step-1 proposals are due September 18, 2012 and Step-2 proposals are due January 8, 2013.
