NASA ROSES-14 Amendment 31: Release of a new call: A.2 LCLUC

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Tuesday, August 26, 2014

ROSES-14 Amendment 31: Release of a new call under A.2, Land-Cover/Land-Use Change Multisource Land Imaging Science

To maximize the utility of current and near-future remote sensing capabilities to study LCLUC, we solicit for efficient use and seamless combination with Landsat, of satellite sensor data from international Landsat-type moderate resolution (~30 m ground resolution), multispectral sources on continental to global scales. A primary focus is on developing algorithms and prototyping products for combined use of data from Landsat and Sentinel-2 toward global land monitoring. However, we also welcome proposals combining Landsat with other sources of moderate resolution data, such as IRS and/or CBERS. Proposals fusing optical sensor data as listed above with radar observations such as from Sentinel-1, as well as those pursuing innovative use of thermal infrared data to improve LCLUC monitoring, are also welcome. The ultimate goal is to develop multisensor methods based on increased temporal-spatial coverage and measurement spectral diversity to advance the virtual constellation paradigm for midresolution land imaging. 

NOIs are requested by October 1, 2014 and the due date for proposals is December 1, 2014

On or about August 26, 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 http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2014.

Questions concerning this program element may be directed to: Garik Gutman at ggutman@nasa.gov or 202-358-0276.
