DESC: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
intends to solicit proposals for the New Investigator Program
(NIP) in Earth Science. The mission of NASA’s Earth Science
Enterprise is to develop understanding of the total Earth system
and the effects of natural and human-induced changes on the
global environment. The Office of Earth Science (OES) supports
basic and applied research, analysis, and science communication
that would promote and increase the use of remotely sensed
information for detecting and evaluating environmental status
and change at both regional and global scales. The objective
of the NIP is to encourage integrated environments for research
and education for scientists and engineers at the early stage
of their professional careers. The program, designed for investigators
at academic institutions and non?profit organizations, emphasizes
the importance the Office of Earth Science places on the early
development of professional careers of faculty members or researchers
as educators. The excitement of research leads to inspired
teaching by enhancing the skills, knowledge and ability of
these investigators in both research and education (formal
or informal). The Office of Earth Science also places particular
emphasis on the investigators’ ability to promote and increase
the use of Earth remote sensing through the proposed research
and education projects. The NIP proposals are openly solicited
approximately every one and a half years. The awards average
from $80,000 to $120,000 per year for a period of up to three
years subject to satisfactory progress and availability of
funds. Proposals submitted in response to this announcement
will be competing for approximately $2.0 million per year beginning
in Fiscal Year 2002. This solicitation will be available electronically
on the release date at the NASA Headquarters Research Opportunities
web site http://research.hq.NASA.gov/ under “Office of Earth
Science (Code Y)”. Paper copies of the NRA will be available
to those who do not have access to the Internet by calling
(202) 358-3552 and leaving a voice mail message. Please provide
full name and address, including ZIP code, and a telephone
number, including area code.
