DESC: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)
intends to solicit proposals for ocean, ice, and climate research
contributing to a unified approach to studying the more slowly
varying components of the earth’s climate system.

Research Announcement (NRA) specifically seeks proposals for
scientific investigations and activities contributing to the
continuation and enhancement of NASA’s Physical and Biological
Oceanography and Cryospheric Sciences Programs. It also seeks
proposals that utilize this knowledge in facilitating the development
and evaluation of models and data assimilation systems that
include representations of the oceanic and cryospheric aspects
of the Earth System. In particular, this announcement solicits
investigations that contribute to NASA’s Seasonal-to-Interannual
Prediction Project (NSIPP). The Oceanography and Cryospheric
Sciences Programs and the NASA’s Seasonal-to-Interannual Prediction
Project (NSIPP) are focusing on specific science questions
from the ESE Research Strategy (
). Many of these questions have links to individual disciplines
as well as the unification of process knowledge gains in their
respective fields. The questions (listed on page 3 of the Research
Strategy) concern the natural and human-induced variability
in the ocean, the responses of the ocean to that variability,
and their interactions with other parts of the climate system.

Additionally, some of these questions pertain specifically
to the Earth’s ice cover and its relationship to the Earth
system. Successful proposals need to be responsive to the ESE
Research Strategy. The NRA will be available electronically
on the release date, via the Internet at the Research Opportunities
Online ”Home Page” at ” ” under
”Office of Earth Science (Code Y) ”.

A paper copy will be
available to those who do not have access to Internet by calling
(202) 358-3552 and leaving a voice mail message.

This announcement
will be open for the period from October 3, 2001 through December
4, 2001, and proposals may be submitted at any time throughout
that period. POC: Dr. Eric Lindstrom, Oceanography Program
