NASA ROSES-15 Amendment 19: Due date delay for A.14 Cryospheric Science

Status Report From: NASA Science Mission Directorate
Posted: Thursday, June 11, 2015

ROSES-15 Amendment 19: This amendment delays the due date for proposals to program element A.14 Cryospheric Science to July 29, 2015.

This solicitation calls for proposals to understand the mechanisms of change in ice in the polar regions and their implications for global climate, sea level, and the polar environment. Proposed studies should use space-based, aircraft based, and other remote sensing techniques to understand the factors controlling the retreat and growth of the world’s major sea- and land-based ice sheets and their interactions with the ocean, atmosphere, solid Earth, and solar radiation. To this end, NASA is soliciting studies of (a) the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets to understand the controls on their mass balance, and (b) the northern and southern hemisphere ice-covered oceans to determine their response to climate change. Field studies are considered only if closely tied to remote sensing efforts.

This amendment delays the due date for proposals for this program element. Proposals are now due by July 29, 2015.

On or about June 11, 2015, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2015" (NNH15ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
