ROSES-20 Amendment 52: Release of Final Text of Citizen Science Seed Funding Program

From: Verner, Katya (Ekaterina.M.Verner at nasa.gov)

The Citizen Science Seed Funding Program (CSSFP) Element of ROSES aims to support scientists and other experts to develop citizen science projects relevant to NASA's Astrophysics, Heliophysics and Planetary Science Research Programs and proposals relevant to Biological and Physical Sciences will also be considered on a case by case basis. The CSSFP aims to advance the use of citizen science by incubating citizen science projects as they are being conceived or during critical transitions, like the year when they are first launched or beta tested (i.e., when the first group of volunteers is invited to try the project) or when the project changes scientific direction. CSSFP awards require relatively short proposals to encourage new proposers to experiment with citizen science techniques; the Science/Technical/Management section has a limit of 6 pages.

ROSES-2020 Amendment 52 releases final text for E.9 Citizen Science Seed Funding Program. Notices of Intent to propose are requested by October 13, 2020 and 6-page Proposals are due December 11, 2020. A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document will be posted on the NSPIRES page for this program element under "Other Documents".

On or about September 11, 2020, this Amendment to the NASA Research Announcement "Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) 2020" (NNH20ZDA001N) will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://solicitation.nasaprs.com/ROSES2020 and will appear on SARA's ROSES blog at: https://science.nasa.gov/researchers/sara/grant-solicitations/roses-2020/.

Questions concerning Citizen Science Seed Funding Program may be directed to Marc Kuchner, who may be reached at marc.kuchner at nasa.gov.


NSF AST Solicitation Deadlines

From: Carrie Black (cblack at nsf.gov)

NSF’s Division of Astronomical Sciences is accepting solar physics and observations related proposals to two programs - the Astronomy and Astrophysics Research Grants (AAG) and the Advanced Technologies and Instrumentation (ATI) Programs. The deadlines are November 16, 2020. For both solicitations, proposals must demonstrate the astronomical context of the work. It is highly recommended that proposers reach out to points of contact with any questions, as proposals that do not adequately demonstrate the astronomical context may be returned without review.

Call for HPAC Committee Members

From: Janet Kozyra (kate.m.petersen at nasa.gov)

Heliophysics Advisory Committee
The NASA Heliophysics Division Seeks Community Members to Serve on the NASA Heliophysics Advisory Committee

We are seeking community members interested in serving on the Heliophysics Advisory Committee (HPAC). HPAC was established to provide advice and make recommendations to the Director of the NASA Heliophysics Division (HPD) on heliophysics programs, policies, plans, and priorities. These inputs are used to inform decisions on the programmatic scope and priorities, as well as the implementation of heliophysics programs. In addition, the HPAC provides a regular forum for broad discussion of heliophysics and the role of heliophysics within and outside of NASA. 

Members are selected to ensure a balanced representation in terms of expertise, points of view and diversity. Selections are made by the HPD Director in consultation with the Associate Administrator of the Science Mission Directorate and with the approval of the NASA Administrator. HPAC consists of 16 members at the present time, who serve without compensation for three year terms with one-third of the committee rotating off every year. 

HPAC meets two to four times a year or as requested by the HPD Director. As required for a FACA committee, meetings are open to the public

Interested community members are asked to complete and submit the form at the link below, which includes uploading single file with a one-page bio and a one-page resume, by October 1, 2020.

The committee is tasked to develop a compelling vision for a systems approach to studying the Earth and to identify the facilities, infrastructure, coordinating mechanisms, computing, and workforce development needed to support that vision. The committee seeks feedback from the scientific community across all components of the Earth system including the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, geosphere, and human institutions and infrastructure. Your answers to this questionnaire will help the authoring committee better understand the range of issues associated with this complex topic.

The  questionnaire is now live on the NASEM website: https://www.nationalacademies.org/our-work/advancing-a-systems-approach-to-studying-the-earth-a-strategy-for-the-national-science-foundation


MEETING: 4th SWMF Users Meeting: November 4–6, 2020

From: Tamas Gombosi, Tuija Pulkkinen, Aaron Ridley, Gabor Toth, Shasha Zou (tamas at umich.edu)

A lot is happening at the University of Michigan in the space weather modeling area. We are well into the first year of our Phase-I NASA Heliophysics DRIVE Science Center (SOLSTICE) and are just starting two major SWQU (Next Generation Software for Data-driven Models of Space Weather with Quantified Uncertainties) projects: NextGen SWMF (funded by NSF) and Aether (funded by NASA). These synergistic efforts are aimed to bring SWMF to the next level by integrating cutting edge machine learning, data assimilation, uncertainty quantification and GPU computing with our world-class physics-based Space Weather Modeling Framework.

In order to engage the SWMF users and the broader SPA community in these activities, we will organize the 4th SWMF Users Meeting to update the Heliophysics community focusing on the latest results and plans. The meeting will take place November 4 - 6, 2020, over Zoom. The meeting will feature new modeling capabilities, science highlights, user experiences and agency perspectives.

The meeting will start Wednesday at 12:30pm (EST) and run through Friday afternoon at 5:30pm (EST). Each day we will have three 90 min long blocks separated by 15 min breaks (12:30-2:00, 2:15-3:45; 4:00-5:30).

The SWMF Users Meeting will include keynote presentations by the Michigan team as well as presentations by the broader SWMF community. The meeting is open to all interested colleagues and students, no presentation is required. If you want to give a science, development, or use-case presentation during the meeting please send a title by email to Tamas Gombosi (tamas at umich.edu) and Debbie Eddy (dkeddy at umich.edu).

A more detailed agenda will be announced as the meeting approaches. The final agenda will be composed of the invited and contributed talks selected based on relevance and available time.

The meeting will be in Zoom Webinar format. Please register in advance at


After registration you will get a participant link that is unique to you.

From: Kazuo Shiokawa (shiokawa at nagoya-u.jp)

Conference website: https://is.isee.nagoya-u.ac.jp/pwing-erg/

The PWING-ERG online conference and school on dynamic variation of particles and waves in the inner magnetosphere and ionosphere using satellite and ground-network observations and modeling will be held on March 8-12, 2021. The conference will be hosted by the Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE) of Nagoya University, Japan and preceded by a school for early career scientists. Both events will be held to celebrate the completion of the PWING project, and as the 5th year anniversary of the ERG (Arase) mission. 

The inner magnetosphere contains plasma particles in wide energy ranges from the plasmasphere (electron volts) to the radiation belts (mega-electron volts). The particles in the inner magnetosphere are accelerated and lost while interacting with electromagnetic waves.  In this conference, we invite presentations on recent advances of ground-based network and satellite missions, as well as modeling efforts to understand acceleration and loss of plasma in the inner magnetosphere and their consequences in the ionosphere. Graduate-course students and young scientists are welcome to join the school held before the conference.
