NASA ROSES-17 Amendment 40: A.9 ECOSTRESS Not Solicited This Year

Status Report From: NASA HQ
Posted: Thursday, October 19, 2017

ROSES-17 Amendment 40 announces that program element A.9, The ECOSTRESS Science Team will not be solicited in ROSES-2017. NASA anticipates that it will be included in ROSES-2018.
 
The ECOSTRESS instrument is a multispectral thermal radiometer with 5 spectral bands for research. The ECOSTRESS science objectives are:
 
1.    Identify critical thresholds of water use and water stress in key climate sensitive biomes;
2.    Detect the timing, location, and predictive factors leading to plant water uptake decline and/or cessation over the diurnal cycle; and,
3.    Measure agricultural water consumptive use over the contiguous United States (CONUS) at spatiotemporal scales applicable to improve drought estimation accuracy.
 
The ECOSTRESS Science Team program element will seek proposals for membership on the ECOSTRESS Science Team. The focus of these proposals will likely be utilization of ECOSTRESS Level 2 (Surface Temperature and Emissivity), Level 3 (Evapotranspiration), and/or Level 4 (Water Use Efficiency and Evaporative Stress Index) data products for basic and applied research of importance to Earth system science.
 
This amendment announces that program element A.9, The ECOSTRESS Science Team will not be solicited in ROSES-2017. NASA anticipates that it will be included in ROSES-2018.
 
On or about October 19, 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 Woody Turner at woody.turner@nasa.gov.
