ROSES 2010 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 1: New proposal opportunity entitled “Science Definition Team for the CLARREO Mission

Description: Amendment 1 creates a new proposal opportunity in Appendix A.38 entitled Science Definition Team for the Climate Absolute Radiance and Refractivity Observatory (CLARREO) Mission which solicits proposals to solicit a Science Definition Team (SDT) to engage in the science definition and planning for the CLARREO mission.

The CLARREO mission addresses the need to rigorously observe climate change on decade time scales and to use decadal change observations as a critical method to determine the accuracy of climate change projections, such as those in the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (http://www.ipcc.ch/).
 
The objective of Appendix A.38 is to solicit a Science Definition Team (SDT) to engage in the science definition and planning for the CLARREO mission. The primary role of the SDT will be to provide expert guidance to the CLARREO project in the areas of science objectives; science requirements; measurement requirements; algorithm development; data products; mission success criteria; potential descope options; and calibration, validation, and liaison with the broader science and applications communities.

No Notices of Intent to propose are requested. Proposals are due July 1, 2010. Table 2 and Table 3 of the Summary of Solicitation for this NRA have been updated to reflect this change.
 
Questions concerning the CLARREO Science Team may be addressed to Kenneth Jucks or Earth (202) 358-0476.
