Program Element A.28 Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science (IDS) seeks interdisciplinary research investigations that meet the following criteria: a) offer a fundamental advance to our understanding of the Earth system; b) be based on remote sensing data, especially satellite observations, but including suborbital sensors, as appropriate; c) go beyond correlation of data sets and seek to understand the underlying causality of change through determination of the specific physical, chemical, and/or biological processes involved; d) be truly interdisciplinary in scope by involving traditionally disparate disciplines of the Earth sciences; and e) address at least one of the five specific themes listed in this solicitation:
· Understanding the Global Sources and Sinks of Methane
· Ecology at Land/Water Interfaces – Human and Environmental Interfaces
· Understanding the Linkages Among Fluvial and Solid Earth Hazards
· Life in a Moving Ocean
· Partitioning of Carbon Between the Atmosphere and Biosphere
Because the NSPIRES proposal submission system will be briefly unavailable on the evening of September 29, 2016, the due date for proposals via NSPIRES has been delayed by one day. Proposals submitted via NSPIRES are now due September 30, 2016. Grants.gov did not permit us to change the due date and it is only NSPIRES that will be unavailable, so proposals submitted via Grants.gov must still arrive by the September 29, 2016 due date posted on Grants.gov.
On or about September 28, 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 http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: http://nasascience.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2016.
General questions about the IDS Program should be directed to Jack Kaye at Jack.A.Kaye@nasa.gov. Questions about specific subelements should be directed to those listed below.
