ROSES-19 Amendment 40: This amendment defers till ROSES-2020 the release of the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) Science Team.
NASA launched the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) instrument to the International Space Station (ISS) in late 2018. This program element will solicit proposals for studies that use GEDI data to address key scientific questions in terrestrial ecology, carbon cycle science, and biodiversity. Selected principal investigators will become members of the GEDI Science Team.
Data collected by the GEDI mission are intended to address three core science questions:
When ROSES-2019 was released A.8 GEDI ST was listed as "TBD" in anticipation of the release of final text with the data. Due to delays in the release of initial GEDI data to the public, the GEDI Science Team program element has been moved to next year. The due dates will be announced with the release of ROSES-2020, on February 14, 2020.
On or about October 11, 2019, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2019" (NNH19ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://solicitation.nasaprs.
