ROSES-12 Amendment 30: Final text for Appendix A.36, Eco Forecasting


ROSES-12 Amendment 30: Final text for Appendix A.36, Earth Science Applications: Ecological Forecasting for Conservation and Natural Resource Management.

In February with the release of ROSES 2012 Appendix A.36, Earth Science Applications: Ecological Forecasting for Conservation and Natural Resource Management, was presented as a placeholder. This amendment presents final text for Appendix A.36.

The Ecological Forecasting program element of the Applied Sciences Program supports the use of NASA observations and associated models to develop a predictive understanding of how ecosystems and their components (e.g., species, genes) are changing and why, in order to enable better conservation and more sustainable natural resource management.

This solicitation will initially support twelve-month feasibility studies of potential applications. NASA will then down-select and continue support for a subset of these applications in subsequent, three-year projects. The three-year projects will continue to develop the application with and then transition the application to a public or private organization for sustained use in decision making and services to end-users.

This Amendment releases final text for Appendix A.36, Earth Science Applications: Ecological Forecasting for Conservation and Natural Resource Management. Notices of Intent are requested by February 14, 2013 and Proposals are due April 18, 2013.

On or about December 21, 2012, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2012" (NNH12ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2012.
