ROSES-19 Amendment 3: This amendment defers the due date for program element A.22 Aura Science Team


This program element seeks proposals for the analysis of satellite remote-sensing data of the Earth’s atmosphere, particularly those using data generated by the Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura satellite. Observations from Aura include those from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS), Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI), Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer (TES) that ceased operation in 2018, and High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (HIRDLS) that ceased operation in 2008.  We are also encouraging proposals that combine data from Aura with data from other sensors within the “A-Train”, S-NPP orbit, or AM constellations (particularly Aqua, Terra, CALIPSO, and CloudSAT, S-NPP) or satellites or instruments from other space agencies (for example; OMPS, SciSat/ACE, MetOp, Sentinel 5 Precursor), ground based networks (e.g., but not limited to ozonesondes, NDACC, AGAGE, AERONET, and MPLNET), and NASA suborbital campaigns (e.g., but not limited to DISCOVER-AQ,ATTREX, POSIDON, FIREX-AQ and SEAC4RS).


The proposal due date for this program element has been deferred to September 19, 2019 to deconflict it from a rescheduled science team meeting, which was delayed due to the government shutdown.


On or about April 4, 2019, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2019” (NNH19ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on the RSS feed at:
