This opportunity is for new and successor interdisciplinary research investigations within NASA’s Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science (IDS) program. Proposed research investigations will meet the following criteria: a) offer a fundamental advance to our understanding of the Earth system; b) be based on remote sensing data, especially satellite observations, but including suborbital sensors as appropriate; c) go beyond correlation of data sets and seek to understand the underlying causality of change through determination of the specific physical, chemical, and/or biological processes involved; d) be truly interdisciplinary in scope by involving traditionally disparate disciplines of the Earth sciences; and e) address at least one of these specific themes:

• Analyzing the Nitrogen Cycle from Space: Integrating Atmospheric Observations and Biogeochemical Models ;
• Ocean-Atmosphere Gas Exchange and Particle Deposition;
• Wildfire Impacts on Ecosystems and Communities ;
• Environmental and Climate Justice Using Earth Observations;
• Processes Across the Land-Ocean Continuum;
• Ocean Worlds: Research at the Interface;
• Earth-Moon Connections in a Changing Climate.

Expected Program Budget: $11.5M Total; $2.0M per year for subelements 1-5; $0.75M per year for subelements 6 and 7

Application Deadline: October 14, 2022 (NOI); November 16, 2022 (Full Proposal)
