Grants and cooperative agreements to USA, Canada, and international investigators affiliated with qualified organizations and institutions for research on carbon stocks and fluxes between reservoirs. Applicants must submit a notice of intent and complete required registrations prior to applying.

This announcement offers opportunities for Carbon Cycle Science investigations within the NASA Earth Science Division Research and Analysis Program. NASA seeks proposals that make significant use of remote sensing data to improve understanding of changes in the distribution and cycling of carbon among the active land, ocean, coastal, and atmospheric reservoirs, and how that understanding can be used to establish a scientific foundation for societal responses to environmental change.

The NASA Earth Science Program goals for Carbon Cycle Science are to improve understanding of the global carbon cycle and to quantify changes in atmospheric CO2 and CH4 concentrations, as well as terrestrial and aquatic carbon fluxes and storage in response to fossil fuel combustion, land use and land cover change, and other human activities and natural events. NASA carbon cycle research encompasses multiple temporal and spatial scales and addresses atmospheric, terrestrial, and aquatic carbon stocks and fluxes, their coupling within the global carbon cycle, and interactions with climate and other aspects of the Earth system. Observations from space provide a platform for NASA carbon cycle research; they contribute toward the goals of major U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) activities, including the Carbon Cycle Science program’s U.S. North American Carbon Program (NACP) and the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry (OCB) program. NASA carbon cycle research also contributes toward the goals of the Ocean Policy Committee and the related activities of its member federal agencies.

This program element requests proposals for research focused on carbon stocks and fluxes between and within freshwater, marine systems, and land ecosystems, and their exchange with the atmosphere. It also targets improving understanding of carbon cycle processes and feedbacks in critical ecosystems, as highlighted by the research topics below, that are particularly vulnerable to environmental change.

The research topics of interest for this program element are divided into two sub-elements, which are further divided into five research topics:

  • 3.1: Carbon Fluxes between and within Land, Freshwater, and Marine Systems
    • 3.1.1. The Land-Ocean Continuum
    • 3.1.2. Carbon Cycle of Critical Ecosystems: Vulnerability of Tropical Forests
    • 3.1.3. Fluxes and Biogeochemistry of Carbon within Oceans
  • 3.2: Carbon Fluxes between Ecosystems and the Atmosphere
    • 3.2.1. Carbon Fluxes between Terrestrial Ecosystems and the Atmosphere
    • 3.2.2. Carbon Fluxes between Oceans and the Atmosphere

For further information on research topics, see https://nspires.nasaprs.com/external/viewrepositorydocument/cmdocumentid=735966/solicitationId=%7B4613663C-BD94-C1FF-E216-5032790DD390%7D/viewSolicitationDocument=1/FULL%20ROSES-2020_Amend53.pdf#page=122.

GrantWatch ID#: 192325

Estimated Total Program Funding:

$4,500,000

Number of Grants:

Expected number of new awards pending adequate proposals of merit ~15 to 25

Term of Contract:

Maximum duration of awards: 3 years. Planning date for start of investigation: 6 to 8 months after proposal due date.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Prospective investigators from any category of organizations or institutions, U.S or non U.S., are welcome to respond to this solicitation. Specific categories of organizations and institutions that are welcome to respond include, but are not limited to, educational, industrial, and not-for-profit organizations, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs), NASA Centers, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and other Government agencies. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges, and Other Minority Universities (OMUs), small disadvantaged businesses (SDBs), veteran-owned small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, HUBZone small businesses, and women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) are encouraged to apply.

Participation in ROSES-funded research by non-U.S. organizations in this program is welcome on a "no exchange of funds" basis. It is NASA policy that each international partner, its sponsoring agency, or its funding/sponsoring institution, covers its own research contributions (further information on foreign participation is provided in ROSES FAQ #14 on this topic and the NASA Guidebook for Proposers).

Normally, NASA does not fund research efforts at foreign organizations, whether proposed directly by a foreign organization, or as part of proposals submitted by U.S. organizations. Unless otherwise stated in the program overview or program element, for any research efforts that derive from this NRA, NASA will provide the support for selected U.S. organizations and the sponsoring foreign agency or institution must do the same for their selected organizations.

For funding restrictions, see https://nspires.nasaprs.com/external/viewrepositorydocument/cmdocumentid=735966/solicitationId=%7B4613663C-BD94-C1FF-E216-5032790DD390%7D/viewSolicitationDocument=1/FULL%20ROSES-2020_Amend53.pdf#page=20.

Pre-Application Information:

Deadline for Notice of Intent: September 28, 2020, 11:59:59 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Deadline for Applications: December 3, 2020, 11:59:59 PM Eastern Standard Time

NOIs must (or should) be submitted via NSPIRES, whether or not the proposal will be submitted via NSPIRES or Grants.gov. NSPIRES is open for the submission of NOIs for typically 30 days, starting about 90 days in advance of the due date for the proposals themselves.

Proposers may opt to submit proposals in response to this ROSES NRA via either of two different electronic proposal submission systems: the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) or Grants.gov.

Required Registrations:
- Every organization that intends to submit a proposal to NASA in response to this NRA must be registered in NSPIRES. This applies equally for proposals submitted via Grants.gov, as well as for proposals submitted via NSPIRES. Every organization that intends to submit a proposal through Grants.gov must also be registered in Grants.gov, as well as in NSPIRES. Registration for either proposal data system must be performed by an organization's electronic business point-of-contact (EBPOC) in the System for Award Management (https://www.sam.gov/SAM/). A Data Universal Number (DUNS) is required to obtain a SAM registration, and applicants are required to maintain an active SAM registration, with current information loaded, at all times while competing for a federal award, and, if applicable, during the period of performance of the award.
- Each individual team member (e.g., PI, Co-Investigators, etc.), including all personnel named on the proposal’s electronic cover page, must be individually registered in NSPIRES. This applies equally for proposals submitted via Grants.gov, as well as for proposals submitted via NSPIRES
