ROSES-16 Amendment 45: Release of New Program Element A.50 Group on Earth Observations Work Programme.

NASA solicits proposals to support and advance specific elements of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Work Programme (WP) 2017-2019. The NASA Earth Science Division, especially the Applied Sciences Program, has supported numerous activities related to past GEO Work Programmes, which have advanced GEO and furthered U.S. and NASA interests. The ESD Applied Sciences Program created this solicitation to foster broader domestic involvement in a U.S. national approach to GEO and the Work Programme. The solicitation targets nine items in the GEO Work Programme 2017-2019.

Key objectives of A.50 GEO WP include:

Achieve demonstrable progress, results, and accomplishments in specific elements of the GEO Work Programme;

Advance use of Earth observations to inform decisions and actions;

Advance and broaden domestic involvement in the U.S. national support to GEO and the GEO Work Programme;

Increase the uptake of Earth observations to inform decisions and actions and broaden the organizations routinely using them;

Increase international collaboration and partnering across GEO and broaden the GEO community;

Advance communication of the benefits of Earth science and observations.

Notices of Intent are requested by January 13, 2017, and proposals are due February 28, 2017.

Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Lawrence Friedl by sending an email to with "ROSES GEO WP Inquiry" in the subject line or by sending email to any of the points of contact concerning this activity listed in Section 3 and the summary table of key information.
