ROSES-08 Amendment 12: New proposal opportunity in Appendix B.9: Solar Dynamics Observatory Science Center

This amendment establishes a new program element in Appendix B.9 entitled “Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) Science Center.” This new program element solicits investigations that will develop the set of standard techniques, create the appropriate software, and implement this software into the SDO data pipeline. Proposals on two topics are solicited: (i) the automated recognition and classification of solar features, and (ii) the development and comprehensive testing of an automated technique for local (near surface) helioseismology aimed at the derivation of the physical properties of magnetic fields below the Sun’s surface and the early detection of emerging active regions.

Notices of Intent (NOIs) to propose are due June 20, 2008. Proposals are due July 25, 2008.

On or about May 30, 2008, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement “Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2008” (NNH08ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at (select “Solicitations” then “Open Solicitations” then “NNH08ZDA001N”).

Comments and requests for further information should be addressed to Dr. Alexei Pevtsov, Heliophysics Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington DC 20546; Telephone: (202) 358-1106; E-mail:
