This amendment replaces the text in Appendix A.10 entitled Terrestrial Hydrology” with the final text. The Terrestrial Hydrology Program (THP) has the scientific objective “to use remote sensing to develop a predictive understanding of the role of water in land-atmosphere interactions and to further the scientific basis of water resources management.” To develop hydrologically-scaling savvy scientists, NASA seeks to work with universities, agencies, and organizations to create a flexible team that together addresses observation of the hydrological cycle as relevant to NASA’s mission of furthering remote sensing science and better assessment of the global water and energy cycles.

NASA is soliciting for proposals to outline research that will address the comparison of information between methods of estimation of hydrological states and fluxes, specifically between in situ and remotely-sensed, or between these two and models. Notices of Intent to propose are due November 14, 2007, and proposals are due January 15, 2008.

On or about October 18, 2007, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2007” (NNH07ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com/ (select “Solicitations” then “Open Solicitations” then “NNH07ZDA001N”).
