The NASA Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) is a forward-looking initiative designed to make significant contributions to characterizing, quantifying, understanding, and predicting the evolution of global carbon sources, sinks, and fluxes through improved monitoring of terrestrial and aquatic carbon stocks and fluxes. This program complements the other programs in the Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems focus area, and as presently implemented, supports research and coordinates the development of prototype carbon monitoring systems.


ROSES-2021 Amendment 8 announces that program element A.6 Carbon Monitoring System (CMS) will not be solicited in ROSES-2021 because all available funding has been committed in the support of proposals submitted in response to CMS in 2020. It is expected that this program element will be solicited in ROSES-2022.


On or about March 23, 2021, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2021” (NNH21ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at and will appear on SARA’s ROSES blog at:
