ROSES-16 Amendment 44: Release of final text for A.7 Carbon Monitoring System

The NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is designed to make significant contributions in characterizing, quantifying, understanding, and predicting the evolution of global carbon sources and sinks through improved monitoring of carbon stocks and fluxes.

NASA’s approach toward its contribution to a carbon monitoring system emphasizes exploitation of current and future satellite remote sensing resources, computational capabilities, integrated ecosystem and atmospheric modeling, scientific knowledge, airborne science capabilities, and end-to-end system expertise that are major strengths of the NASA Earth Science program. The emphasis has been on regional, national, and global satellite-based carbon monitoring products relevant to national needs for completely transparent carbon and biomass inventory processes that provide a robust statistical framework for reporting precision and accuracy in a geospatially explicit manner.

Notices of Intent are requested by January 5, 2017, and proposals are due February 24, 2017.

Proposers to this program will not be asked to submit a data management plan via the NSPIRES cover pages, because the data management plan is part of the proposal and included in the evaluation of Merit, see Sections 2.2.8 and 3.2.

Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Ken Jucks at
