NASA ROSES-14 Amendment 13: Release of A.22, DSCOVR Earth Science Algorithms

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Monday, April 14, 2014


ROSES-14 Amendment 13 releases the final text for A.22, DSCOVR Earth Science Algorithms.


The Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) mission is a multiagency (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA], U.S. Air Force, and NASA) mission planned for launch in 2015 with the primary goal of making unique space weather measurements from the first Sun-Earth Lagrange point (L1). NASA has integrated two Earth-observing instruments, the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Advanced Radiometer (NISTAR) to the DSCOVR satellite


Proposals are sought in two topical areas: (1) To develop and implement the necessary algorithms and processes to enable various data products from EPIC sunrise to sunset observations once on orbit (such as ozone or cloud maps), as well as proposals to improve the calibration of EPIC based on in-flight data; (2) To determine the Earth reflected and radiated irradiance with an accuracy of 1.5% or better from NISTAR, as well as proposals to improve the NISTAR calibrations based on in-flight data.


Notices of Intent are requested by May 12, 2014; proposals are due July 14, 2014.


On or about April 14, 2014, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2014" (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
