80NSSC20K0952 - DUST IS A MAJOR TYPE OF AEROSOLS IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND A KEY COMPONENT OF THE EARTH SYSTEM. DUST CAN INTERACT WITH THE SOLAR AND TERRESTRIAL RADIATION, CLOUD MICROPHYSICS AND HYDROLOGICAL CYCLES, DECREASE THE SURFACE ALBEDO WHEN DEPOSITED ONTO SNOW/ICE, PROVIDE NUTRIENTS FOR THE TERRESTRIAL AND OCEANIC BIOGEOCHEMISTRY, AND IMPACT ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY. THE SIMULATION OF DUST AEROSOL IN GLOBAL CLIMATE MODELS (GCMS) IS HOWEVER, NOT WELL CONSTRAINED, AND THE MODELED EMISSION AND BURDEN ARE ASSOCIATED WITH LARGE UNCERTAINTIES. THIS PROPOSAL AIMS AT IMPROVING THE DUST AEROSOL MODELING CAPABILITIES IN GCMS AND REDUCING THE UNCERTAINTY OF DUST AEROSOL RADIATIVE FORCING ON CLIMATE BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE CLOUD-AEROSOL LIDAR AND INFRARED PATHFINDER SATELLITE OBSERVATION (CALIPSO), CLOUDSAT, AND OTHER ATRAIN SATELLITE MEASUREMENTS. THE FIRST OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A NEW CLIMATOLOGICAL (~10 YEARS) DATASET OF 3-DIMENSIONAL (3-D) DUST AEROSOL DISTRIBUTIONS WITH AN IMPROVED DETECTION OF OPTICALLY THIN DUST LAYERS, WHICH IS CRITICAL FOR STUDYING DUST-CLOUD INTERACTIONS. THE SECOND OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSAL IS TO USE THE NEW 3-D DATASET TO EVALUATE THE SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION, SEASONAL CYCLE AND INTERANNUAL VARIABILITY OF DUST AEROSOL SIMULATED BY THE NCAR COMMUNITY EARTH SYSTEM MODEL/COMMUNITY ATMOSPHERE MODEL VERSION 5 (CESM-CAM5) AND THE NASA GODDARD EARTH OBSERVING SYSTEM MODEL, VERSION 5 (GEOS-5). MODEL PERFORMANCE WILL BE ASSESSED AND WEAKNESSES BE IDENTIFIED. AS A THIRD OBJECTIVE, WE WILL MAKE IMPROVEMENTS TO THE DUST AEROSOL REPRESENTATION IN CESM-CAM5 AND GEOS-5 WITH THE INCLUSION OF SUBGRID SURFACE WIND VARIABILITY FOR DUST EMISSION AND IMPROVE THE TREATMENT OF TRANSPORT AND SCAVENGING OF AEROSOLS IN CONVECTIVE CLOUDS. FINALLY, THE CESM-CAM5 AND GEOS-5 MODELS WITH UPDATED DUST AEROSOL CAPABILITIES WILL BE USED TO STUDY DUST AEROSOL DIRECT AND INDIRECT EFFECTS ON CLIMATE. THIS PROPOSAL WILL PROVIDE AN IMPROVED TOOL FOR FUTURE STUDIES OF THE AEROSOL-EARTH SYSTEM INTERACTIONS AND FEEDBACKS ASSOCIATED WITH DUST AEROSOL. THE NEW DUST REPRESENTATION WILL BE USED IN THE GEOS-5 MODELING AND DATA ASSIMILATION SYSTEM TO PRODUCE AEROSOL RE-ANALYSIS FOR THE NASA S NUMERICAL WEATHER FORECAST AND AIR QUALITY STUDIES. THIS PROPOSAL DIRECTLY SUPPORTS SEVERAL OF THE NASA S CLOUDSAT AND CALIPSO RESEARCH THEMES. SPECIFICALLY, IT PROVIDES PHENOMENOLOGICAL STUDIES OF FUNDAMENTAL AEROSOL PROCESSES AND EVOLUTION, AS WELL AS AEROSOL INDIRECT EFFECTS AND VERTICAL TRANSPORT THIS PROPOSAL UTILIZES OBSERVATIONS THAT ARE AIMED AT DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF AEROSOL PARAMETERIZATIONS FOR REGIONAL, GLOBAL, AND CLIMATE MODELS IT DEVELOPS A NEW DATASET OF THE 3-D AEROSOL CLIMATOLOGIES, SPATIAL CORRELATIONS AND TRENDS WITH USE OF CALIPSO AND CLOUDSAT PRODUCTS.

80NSSC20K1141 - WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP, IMPLEMENT, AND MAINTAIN A CLOUD-BASED, OPEN-SOURCE SOFTWARE SYSTEM CAPABLE OF PRODUCING THE PARAMETERS NEEDED BY NASA FOR THE OFFICIAL DISCHARGE PRODUCT FOR EVERY RIVER IN THE SWOT RIVER DATABASE (SWORD). WE NAME THIS SYSTEM CONFLUENCE, AS IT REPRESENTS A MERGING OF A DECADE OF PREVIOUS THEORETICAL WORK, SWOT DATA, SCIENCE TEAM (ST) PRODUCTS, AND AN ST COMMUNITY APPROACH TO ESTIMATING DISCHARGE. CONFLUENCE WILL DEPLOY FIVE MASS CONSERVED FLOW LAW INVERSION (MCFLI) DISCHARGE ALGORITHMS DEVELOPED BY THE PREVIOUS ST AT THE GLOBAL SCALE. WE WILL ADD NUMEROUS AND NECESSARY NOVEL DIAGNOSTICS PRE- AND POST- MCFLI, COMBINE MCFLI ALGORITHMS INTO A CONSENSUS PRODUCT, INCLUDE EVALUATION MODULES, AND PROVIDE DISCHARGE PARAMETERS TO THE ST AND TO NASA. WE ANTICIPATE ADDITIONAL INPUTS OF PRIOR DATA FROM OTHER ST MEMBERS THAT WILL IMPROVE OUR DISCHARGE ESTIMATES AND THUS THE DISCHARGE PRODUCT. OUR DISCHARGE OUTPUT WILL ALSO BE READILY AVAILABLE TO THE ST AS INPUTS FOR OTHER PROJECTS SEEKING TO MERGE SWOT DISCHARGE WITH MODELS. IN SUM, WE ARE SEEKING TO PROVIDE THE COMPUTATIONAL BACKBONE OF SWOT DISCHARGE FOR JPL AND THE ENTIRE ST, CONSISTENT WITH THE CALL FOR EXACTLY SUCH PROPOSALS. CREATING OUR PROPOSED SYSTEM IS A SUBSTANTIAL UNDERTAKING, AND IN ORDER TO FULLY DEVELOP AND DISTRIBUTE ANY PROPOSED DATA PRODUCTS USING PROPOSED RESOURCES, WE BELIEVE THAT DEVELOPING, TESTING, AND DISTRIBUTING A GLOBAL DISCHARGE PRODUCT WILL OCCUPY THE ENTIRETY OF THE PRE-LAUNCH PERIOD AND REQUIRE A SUBSTANTIAL PERCENTAGE OF TOTAL PROPOSED RESOURCES, LEAVING LITTLE TIME PRE-LAUNCH FOR THE SCIENCE OF DISCHARGE. THIS IS GROUNDED IN OUR EXPERIENCE DEVELOPING A WORKING PROTOTYPE OF CONFLUENCE OVER THE PAST CALENDAR YEAR. WE WILL THUS PARTNER WITH AN ST PROPOSAL SUBMITTED BY MICHAEL DURAND OF THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY, WHO (IF FUNDED) WILL DEVELOP A SELECT FEW NOVEL CONFLUENCE MODULES AND LEAD DISCHARGE EVALUATION PRE- AND POST-LAUNCH, TASKS BEYOND AVAILABLE RESOURCES FOR THIS PROPOSAL. ALSO FOLLOWING OUR PROTOTYPE EXPERIENCE, WE WILL HIRE A DEDICATED SOFTWARE ENGINEER FOR THIS PRE-LAUNCH PERIOD TO PROFESSIONALLY DEVELOP THE SOFTWARE ON TIME AND ON BUDGET. THE SOFTWARE ENGINEER WILL ALSO OPTIMIZE EXISTING MCFLI ALGORITHMS, HOPEFULLY LEADING TO LARGE GAINS IN COMPUTING SPEED. POST-LAUNCH (AND POST-SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT), WE ARE MOTIVATED BY A DRIVING SCIENCE QUESTION: WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO COMBINE PRIOR DATABASES AND SWOT OBSERVATIONS TO ESTIMATE GLOBAL RIVER DISCHARGE? THE COMPUTER ENGINEERING PERSONNEL HEREIN ARE EXPERTS IN MACHINE LEARNING AND BIG DATA FOR INFRASTRUCTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS. CONFLUENCE WILL HAVE ACCESS TO ALL GLOBAL SWOT DATA, A RICH DATABASE OF PRIOR INFORMATION FROM THE ST, AND NUMEROUS DISCHARGE ESTIMATES FROM DIFFERENT PHYSICAL INVERSION PLATFORMS: AN UNPRECEDENTED VOLUME OF DATA. THUS, OUR COMPUTER ENGINEERING EXPERTISE WILL BE BROUGHT TO BEAR TO ASSESS WHETHER THE WEALTH OF GLOBAL SWOT DATA COLLATED IN CONFLUENCE COULD MORE EFFECTIVELY ESTIMATE DISCHARGE USING MACHINE LEARNING TECHNIQUES RATHER THAN WITH MCFLI AS ENVISIONED BY HYDROLOGISTS DURING THE PAST DECADE OF SWOT THEORY WORK BY THE ST. WE ULTIMATELY PROPOSE TO BE THE FINAL STOP FOR ALL INFORMATION NEEDED TO PRODUCE DISCHARGE AT THE GLOBAL SCALE. WE HOPE TO PROVIDE A PLATFORM TO AMALGAMATE ALL ST DISCHARGE KNOWLEDGE AND INSIGHT INTO AN EFFICIENT, OPEN SOURCE, AND COMPREHENSIVE SOFTWARE PLATFORM. HAVING THIS SINGLE SOFTWARE SYSTEM WILL PREVENT REDUNDANCIES, IMPROVE EFFICIENCY, AND ENSURE THE BEST DISCHARGE PRODUCT POSSIBLE IS DELIVERED ON TIME TO NASA AND THE PUBLIC. OUR OPEN SOURCE AND CONTAINERIZED SOFTWARE CAN RUN ON ANY OPERATING SYSTEM, CLUSTER, OR CLOUD, AND THUS INDIVIDUAL ST MEMBERS, NASA, AND THE PUBLIC CAN PURSUE THEIR OWN DISCHARGE GOALS ON THEIR OWN TERMS WHILE WE, AT THE SAME TIME, DELIVER ON MISSION DISCHARGE REQUIREMENTS AT THE GLOBAL SCALE.

80NSSC20K0808 - WHILE CLOUDS PLAY IN CRITICAL ROLE IN REGULATING THE ENERGY BUDGET OF THE EARTH-ATMOSPHERE SYSTEM, REPRESENTATION OF CLOUD PROPERTIES AND MICROPHYSICAL PROCESSES IN CURRENT CLIMATE MODELS REMAINS ONE OF THE LARGEST SOURCES OF UNCERTAINTY. AMONG NUMEROUS MODELED CLOUD PROPERTIES, CLOUD WATER PATH (CWP), ESPECIALLY ICE WATER PATH (IWP), SHOWS SIGNIFICANT LARGE INTER-MODEL DIFFERENCE. ONE IMPORTANT REASON FOR THE LARGE IWP UNCERTAINTY IS THE LACK OF ROBUST AND CONSISTENT OBSERVATIONAL CONSTRAINTS. ALTHOUGH CURRENT SATELLITE INSTRUMENTS PROVIDE AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY TO OBSERVE GLOBAL CLOUDS, STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT IWP RETRIEVALS FROM DIFFERENT SATELLITE-BASED INSTRUMENTS CAN VARY BY A FACTOR OF 10. ADDITIONAL COMPLICATION MAY ARISE FROM USING THE INCONSISTENT IWP RECORDS TO CONSTRAIN MODELS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH INTENDS TO OBTAIN A MORE COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION FOR GLOBAL CLOUDS FROM COMBINED PASSIVE INFRARED (IR) AND MICROWAVE (MW) OBSERVATIONS. A NOVEL AND ROBUST ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED TO RETRIEVE IWP AND CLOUD-TOP HEIGHT (CTH) FOR VARIOUS SATELLITE INSTRUMENT COMBINATIONS WITH SIMULTANEOUS IR AND MW OBSERVATIONS. LONG-TERM, CONSISTENT, AND RELIABLE GLOBAL CLOUD RECORDS WILL BE GENERATED. THE LONG-TERM AND CONSISTENT CWP AND CTH RECORDS WILL DIRECTLY BENEFIT A WIDE VARIETY OF RESEARCH COMMUNITIES, IMPROVE OUR UNDERSTANDING OF UNCERTAINTIES IN CURRENT CLOUD RECORDS, AND PROVIDE A UNIQUE AND VALUABLE OBSERVATIONAL CONSTRAINT FOR REPRODUCING CLOUD MICROPHYSICAL PROCESSES AND IMPROVING CLOUD PARAMETERIZATIONS IN CLIMATE AND WEATHER MODELS.

80NSSC20K1074 - THIS PROJECT HAS TWO MAIN COMPONENTS: IT WILL CONTINUE INFRARED OBSERVATIONS OF VENUS DURING UPCOMING INFERIOR CONJUNCTIONS TO COMPLEMENT AKATSUKI'S CURRENT INSTRUMENT SUITE, AND IT WILL ANALYZE PAST AND UPCOMING OBSERVATIONS TO DETERMINE CLOUD VELOCITIES, CLOUD PROPERTIES (PARTICLE SIZES AND ACIDITIES) AND TRACE GAS ABUNDANCES. THE GOALS OF THIS PROJECT ARE TO HELP AKATSUKI DATA SETS ADDRESS A HOST OF KEY QUESTIONS (LISTED BELOW) BY SUPPLEMENTING THEM WITH GROUND-BASED SPECTRAL IMAGE CUBES THAT IMPART CLOUD PROPERTIES, O2 (1 D) AIRGLOW MAPS AND TRACE GAS DISTRIBUTIONS, PLUS NIGHTSIDE CLOUD MOTIONS. WE WILL APPLY FOR OBSERVING TIME TO CARRY OUT THE OBSERVATIONAL COMPONENT OF THIS PROJECT. WE HAVE ALREADY APPLIED FOR TIME AT THE IRTF AND NOT (NORDIC OPTICAL TELESCOPE) FOR THE JUNE/JULY 2020 INFERIOR CONJUNCTION. IMAGING FROM THE IRTF BY ITSELF CAN RESOLVE CLOUD MOTIONS AT THE 3-5 M/S LEVEL, BETTER THAN RESOLUTIONS REPORTED IN VENUS EXPRESS CLOUD TRACKING INVESTIGATIONS. LONGITUDINALLY SEPARATED SITES (LIKE THE IRTF AND NOT) CAN PROVIDE 10-H BASELINES BETWEEN CLOUD IMAGING SEQUENCES AND REDUCE CLOUD MOTION UNCERTAINTIES TO THE 1 M/S LEVEL. WE WILL ALSO APPLY FOR TIME AT THE IRTF AND OTHER TELESCOPES DURING THE JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2022 INFERIOR CONJUNCTION. THE IRTF WITH SPEX IS WELL-SUITED TO OBSERVING VENUS AT INFERIOR CONJUNCTION: WE REGULARLY OBTAIN 4-H SPANS OF NIGHTSIDE CLOUD IMAGE SEQUENCES WITH SPATIAL RESOLUTIONS OF 0.5" FROM SELECTED SHARP IMAGES. DURING IMAGING SEQUENCES WE DRIFT THE SPEX SPECTROMETER SLIT ACROSS VENUS'S DISK TO GET CONCURRENT SPECTRA FROM 0.8 TO 2.45 M, COVERING CO2 WINDOWS AT 1.74 AND 2.2-2.45 M THAT ARE DIAGNOSTIC OF CO, OCS, H2O, CLOUD PARTICLE SIZES AND CLOUD ACIDITIES. WE WILL ANALYZE THESE SPECTRA WITH SMART, A RADIATIVE TRANSFER CODE THAT HAS BEEN USED WITH APO/TRIPLESPEC OBSERVATIONS OF VENUS. TO HELP US AND OTHERS BETTER EXTRACT CLOUD MOTIONS FROM IMAGING SEQUENCES, WE ARE PUBLISHING VENIM (VENUS IMAGING PACKAGE), A PYTHON PACKAGE BASED ON ALGORITHMS WE DEVELOPED IN THE SUMMER OF 2018 WITH CALTECH SURF STUDENTS. THIS PROPOSAL IS COMPLIANT WITH THE C.25 ROSES CALL IN THAT IT PROVIDES GROUND-BASED OBSERVATIONS THAT COMPLEMENT AND ADD CAPABILITIES TO THE AKATSUKI DATA SETS. A SPECIFIC GOAL OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN AKATSUKI INVESTIGATORS AND OURSELVES.

80NSSC20K1129 - IN THE PAST YEAR, WE TRAINED AN MIT UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT, MS. AFURA TAYLOR, TO WORK ON THE XMM-NEWTON SGR B2 DATASET. AFURA DID AN EXCELLENT WORK REDUCING XMM DATA, EXTRACTING SPECTRUM AND LIGHT CURVES FROM THE TARGET. SHE ALSO PERFORMED IMAGE ANALYSIS TO UNDERSTAND THE MORPHOLOGY OF THE INTERESTED SOURCE. SPECTRAL FITTING, TIMING ANALYSIS AND IMAGE ANALYSIS ON THE XMM-NEWTON DATASET WERE ALL COMPLETED SO FAR. AFURA MADE A POSTER PRESENTATION REPORTING HER ANALYSIS RESULTS ON THIS PROJECT AT THE #235 AAS IN HONOLULU, HAWAII, IN JANUARY 2020, WHICH IS GREAT ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR AN UNDERGRADUATE. WE HAVE A SIMULTANEOUS 150 KS NUSTAR OBSERVATION ON SGR B2 OBTAINED FROM A SEPARATE PROPOSAL. JOINT XMM AND NUSTAR ANALYSIS IS THE MOST POWERFUL TOOL FOR THIS ANALYSIS. THEREFORE, OUR TEAM ALSO REDUCED THE NUSTAR DATA, AND PERFORMED SPECTRAL AND IMAGING STUDY. BY FEBRUARY 2020, WE HAVE FINISHED JOINT ANALYSIS OF NUSTAR AND XMM-NEWTON DATA. BY COMPARING WITH ARCHIVAL DATA, WE CONCLUDE THAT AFTER TWO DECADES OF DECAYING, SGR B2 S X-RAY EMISSION PROBABLY HAS ENTERED A CONSTANT BASE LEVEL EMISSION STAGE, JUST AS WHAT WE PREDICTED IN THE ORIGINAL PROPOSAL. THIS CONSTANT EMISSION LEVEL IS MOST LIKELY DUE TO LOW-ENERGY COSMIC-RAY CONTRIBUTION. THUS, WE CAN USE SGR B2 CLOUD AS A PROBE FOR MEV-GEV CHARGED PARTICLES IN THE GALACTIC CENTER. OUR NEXT STEP IS TO WRITE A PAPER REPORTING ALL OUR FINDINGS FOR THIS PROJECT, WITH A TITLE OF FIRST CONSTRAINTS ON THE GALACTIC CENTER MEV-GEV COSMIC-RAYS USING REMAINING X-RAY EMISSION FROM SGR B2 . UNDERGRADUATES INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT WILL BE MAJOR AUTHORS FOR THIS PAPER. THE SCIENCE PI SHUO ZHANG HAD A TRANSITION TIME FROM A POSTDOC AT MIT TO AN ASSISTANT PROFESSOR AT BARD COLLEGE. THEREFORE, THIS PROJECT HAS TO BE TRANSFERRED FROM MIT TO BARD COLLEGE. THE LAST PHRASE OF THE PROJECT WILL TAKE PLACE AT BARD COLLEGE. OUR PLAN IS TO FOCUS ON WRITING THE DRAFT DURING JUNE TO AUGUST 2020, AND SUBMIT THE PAPER TO THE ASTROPHYSICAL JOURNAL IN FALL 2020. WE THEREFORE APPRECIATE CONTINUING SUPPORT TO THIS PROJECT, WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO PUBLISH THIS RESULT.
