Terrestrial Ecology: NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment Seeks Proposals


ABoVE is soliciting terrestrial ecology proposals.

NASA is initiating ABoVE Phase 2 by soliciting proposals that continue ecosystem dynamics research objectives, with an increased interest in projects that advance its ecosystem services and modeling objectives. ABoVE Phase 2 research is solicited in four areas:

(1) Analyzing remote sensing data collected during the 2017 ABoVE Airborne Campaign (AAC) to develop the data products required to improve understanding of ecosystem dynamics;

(2) Developing a better understanding of the ecophysiological basis of the relationships between surface and satellite measurements of Solar Induced Fluorescence (SIF) for northern ecosystems and its link to ecosystem productivity;

(3) Continuing research on the societal impacts of changes to Arctic and boreal ecosystems; and

(4) Integrating research results from ABoVE into a coherent modeling framework to diagnose and predict ecosystem dynamics and the consequent societal impacts of changes to the ecosystem. Phase 2 also includes the (5) opportunity for a person (or persons) to serve as the ABoVE Science Team Lead(s).

Notices of Intent are requested by June 18, 2018 and the due date for proposals is September 7, 2018.

On or about May 4, 2018, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2018” (NNH18ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/

Questions concerning this program element should be directed to Hank Margolis at hank.a.margolis@nasa.gov.
