Amendment 60: C.2 SSW Proposal Due Date Delay

Amendment 60 delays the Proposal Due Date for Program Element C.3 Solar System Workings to February 22, 2018.

The Solar System Workings (SSW) program element supports research into atmospheric, climatological, dynamical, geologic, geophysical, and geochemical processes occurring on planetary bodies, satellites, and other minor bodies (including rings) in the Solar System. This call seeks to address the physical and chemical processes that affect the surfaces, interiors, atmospheres, exospheres, and magnetospheres of planetary bodies. A wide range of investigations will be covered, including theoretical studies, analytical and numerical modeling, sample-based studies of extraterrestrial materials, field work, laboratory studies, and data synthesis relevant to the physical and chemical processes affecting planetary systems.

In response to community input, as well as professional hardships caused by the recent extreme weather, the proposal due date for Program element C.2 Solar System Workings has been delayed to February 22, 2018.

Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Jennifer Heldmann, or any other member of the SSW caucus, via email to
