NASA ROSES-17 Amendment 22: A.17 IceBridge Research not solicited in 2017

Status Report From: NASA HQ
Posted: Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Amendment 22: program element A.17, IceBridge Research will not be solicited in ROSES-2017. It is being deferred until no earlier than ROSES-2018.
 
IceBridge (http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/icebridge/) is a NASA airborne science mission collecting altimetry, radar, and other geophysical observations to monitor and characterize the Earth’s polar sea ice, glaciers, and continental ice sheets. Begun in 2009, the mission’s primary goal is to extend the record of ice altimetry begun by NASA’s Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) that was in operation 2003-2009. The mission will continue for at least one year past the launch of ICESat-2, currently estimated for late 2018.
 
IceBridge Research supports projects that use the IceBridge data archived at http://nsidc.org/data/icebridge/ to understand the mechanisms of change in ice in the polar regions. However, IceBridge Research will not be solicited in ROSES-2017. It is being deferred until no earlier than ROSES-2018.
 
On or about August 9, 2017, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2017" (NNH17ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ and will appear on the RSS feed at: https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2017/
 
Questions concerning this program element may be directed to Thomas Wagner at thomas.wagner@nasa.gov.
