ROSES-16 Amendment 23: Delay of due date for Program Element A.19 Atmospheric Composition: Aura Science Team and Atmospheric Composition Modeling and Analysis Program

Program Element A.19 seeks proposals for the analysis of satellite remote-sensing data of the Earth’s atmosphere, particularly those using data generated by the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura satellite. Observations from Aura include those from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS), Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI), Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES), and High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (HIRDLS) that ceased operation in 2008. We are also encouraging proposals that combine data from Aura with data from other sensors within the "A-Train," S-NPP orbit, or morning crossing constellations (particularly Aqua, Terra, CALIPSO, and CloudSAT, S-NPP) or satellites or instruments from other space agencies (for example; SciSat/ACE, MetOp), ground based networks (e.g., but not limited to ozonesondes, NDACC, AGAGE, AERONET, and MPLNET), and NASA suborbital campaigns (e.g., but not limited to DISCOVER-AQ, ATTREX, CARVE, and SEAC4RS). These proposals should enable NASA research in the area of stratospheric and tropospheric chemistry, as well as improve the measurements of aerosols and trace gases, and determining the impacts of trace gasses and aerosols on climate and air quality. Proposals should specifically address the use of the satellite data.

Because of Emergency Maintenance between 10:00 p.m. on August 17, 2016, and 6:00 a.m. on August 18, 2016, engineers will replace a failing component on one of the routing devices that hosts the NSPIRES web page. For at least part of this time, NSPIRES will not be available. As a result, proposals to Program Element A.19 Atmospheric Composition: Aura Science Team and Atmospheric Composition Modeling and Analysis are now due August 19, 2016.

On or about August 17, 2016, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2016" (NNH16ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
