ROSES-14 Amendment 43 releases the final text for A.4, the Terrestrial Ecology Program.

NASA Terrestrial Ecology research addresses changes in Earth’s carbon cycle and ecosystems using space-based observations in order to improve understanding of the structure and function of global terrestrial ecosystems, their interactions with the atmosphere and hydrosphere, and their role in the cycling of the major biogeochemical elements and water. 

The focus of this solicitation is the initial research to begin the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) field campaign — a large-scale study of ecosystem responses to environmental change in western North America’s Arctic and boreal region and the implications for social-ecological systems. The Overarching Science Question for ABoVE is: How vulnerable or resilient are ecosystems and society to environmental change in the Arctic and boreal region of western North America?

Notices of intent to propose are requested by January 20, 2015, and proposals are due March 20, 2015.

On or about December 9, 2014, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2014” (NNH14ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at: 

Questions concerning this amendment and A.4, the Terrestrial Ecology Program, should be directed to: Eric Kasischke at or (202) 358-1884.
