Health and Air Quality Applied Sciences Team (ROSES 2020)

Funding Agency:
National Aeronautics and Space Administration

The NASA Earth Science Division (ESD) Applied Sciences Program seeks proposals to form a Health and Air Quality Applied Sciences Team (HAQAST). This team will apply Earth observations to improve and develop decision-making activities and enable transition and adoption by public- and/or private-sector organization(s) for sustained use in decision making and services to end users in the areas of public health and air quality.

This team will focus on specific applications and demonstrations required to advance the health and air quality management communities’ uses of Earth science observations and models in decision making. An emphasis of the team is on responsiveness to managerial and end user needs, as well as pursuit of multiple applications of varied durations. Awardees will receive baseline funding to be a team member; a separate amount, representing a significant portion of funds overall, will be allocated to team members for "tiger team" projects during the course of the HAQAST. Submissions to this solicitation shall not propose any "tiger team" activities.
