80NSSC20K0189 - THE GLOBAL IONOSPHERE ELECTRIC FIELD VARIES CONSIDERABLY LONGITUDINALLY AND FROM DAY-TO-DAY, BUT THE CAUSES OF THESE CHANGES ARE NOT WELL UNDERSTOOD. THE MAIN PROCESSES THAT PRODUCE ELECTRIC FIELDS INCLUDE: THE NEUTRAL WIND DYNAMO THE HIGH-LATITUDE ELECTRIC FIELDS OF MAGNETOSPHERIC ORIGIN AND THE PENETRATION OF THESE FIELDS TO LOWER LATITUDES. INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THESE PROCESSES, THEIR LONGITUDINAL VARIABILITY, PARTICULARLY DURING GEOMAGNETIC STORMS, PRODUCE HIGHLY DYNAMIC YET POORLY-UNDERSTOOD, LONGITUDINAL AND DAY-TO-DAY VARIATIONS IN THE GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELD. AT THE LOW- AND EQUATORIAL LATITUDES, THE GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELD CAN RAPIDLY RAISE OR LOWER THE IONOSPHERE, AND THUS HELP CREATE OR SUPPRESS PLASMA INSTABILITIES, GENERATE SMALL-SCALE IRREGULARITIES THAT ARE DELETERIOUS TO GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) AND RADIO SIGNAL PROPAGATION. WE PROPOSE TO IMPROVE OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE VARIABILITY OF THE GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELD AND ITS IMPACT ON THE MID-, LOW- LATITUDE AND EQUATORIAL IONOSPHERE, BY ADDRESSING FOUR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS: 1) HOW DO THE LOWER ATMOSPHERE TIDES/WAVES AND MAGNETOSPHERIC INPUTS IMPACT THE GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELDS DURING GEOMAGNETICALLY QUIET TIMES? 2) HOW DO THE QUIET-TIME GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELDS IMPACT THE LONGITUDINAL AND DAY-TO-DAY VARIABILITY OF THE IONOSPHERE AND PLASMA INSTABILITY AT THE MID-, LOW-, AND EQUATORIAL LATITUDES? 3) HOW DO GEOMAGNETIC STORMS IMPACT THE GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELDS? 4) HOW DO THE STORM-TIME GLOBAL ELECTRIC FIELDS IMPACT THE LONGITUDINAL AND DAY-TO-DAY VARIABILITY OF THE IONOSPHERE AND PLASMA INSTABILITY AT THE MID-, LOW-, AND EQUATORIAL LATITUDES? WE WILL EMPLOY THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE COMMUNITY CLIMATE MODEL WITH THERMOSPHERE AND IONOSPHERE EXTENSION (WACCM-X) TO CARRY OUT THE PROPOSED WORK. AN UPPER ATMOSPHERIC MODEL USES EMPIRICAL OR SPECIFIED LOWER ATMOSPHERE TIDAL FORCING. THIS IMPAIRS THE ACCURATE DETERMINATION OF ELECTRODYNAMIC FORCING FROM BOTH BELOW AND ABOVE. WACCM-X TREATS THE WHOLE ATMOSPHERE AS AN INTEGRATED SYSTEM, AND EMPLOYS REALISTIC ELECTRODYNAMIC FORCING FROM BOTH BELOW AND ABOVE. PERIODS OF GEOMAGNETIC ACTIVITY THAT ARE SUITABLE FOR THIS STUDY WILL BE IDENTIFIED. WACCM-X WILL BE RUN WITH, AND WITHOUT, MAGNETOSPHERIC INPUTS TO UNDERSTAND THE INTERPLAY BETWEEN THE TWO FORCING SOURCES. IONOSPHERIC RAYLEIGH-TAYLOR (R-T) INSTABILITY GROWTH RATES WILL BE CALCULATED USING MODEL OUTPUTS. THE WACCM-X RUNS WILL BE COMPARED WITH DATA FROM INCOHERENT SCATTER RADARS (ISRS), COMMUNICATION/NAVIGATION OUTAGE FORECAST SYSTEM-COUPLED ION NEUTRAL DYNAMIC INVESTIGATION (C/NOFS-CINDI), THE DEFENSE METEOROLOGY SATELLITE PROGRAM (DMSP), CONSTELLATION OBSERVING SYSTEM FOR METEOROLOGY, IONOSPHERE, AND CLIMATE (COSMIC), AND TOTAL ELECTRON CONTENT (TEC), TO UNDERSTAND LONGITUDINAL VARIATIONS OF THE IONOSPHERE AND PLASMA INSTABILITY FROM MID- TO EQUATORIAL LATITUDES. DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSES WILL BE CONDUCTED TO UNDERSTAND PHYSICAL SOURCES THAT DRIVE THIS VARIABILITY. THE PROJECT TEAM WILL MAKE THE FOLLOWING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE WIDER TEAM EFFORT. MODEL OUTPUT AND RESULTS FROM THE PROPOSED STUDIES, INCLUDING THE CALCULATED R-T INSTABILITY GROWTH RATES, WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE TO ALL TEAMS. WE WILL ATTEND TEAM MEETINGS AND PARTICIPATE IN TEAM COLLABORATIVE TASKS. THE PROPOSED STUDIES DIRECTLY ADDRESS THE LWS FOCUSED SCIENCE TOPIC MID-LATITUDE AND EQUATORIAL DYNAMICS OF THE IONOSPHERE- THERMOSPHERE SYSTEM. IT ALSO ADDRESSES THE KEY SCIENCE GOAL #2 OUTLINED IN THE CURRENT NASA DECADAL SURVEY: DETERMINE THE DYNAMICS AND COUPLING OF EARTH S MAGNETOSPHERE, IONOSPHERE, AND ATMOSPHERE AND THEIR RESPONSE TO SOLAR AND TERRESTRIAL INPUTS. FURTHERMORE, IT IS VERY RELEVANT TO INTERPRETING THE OUTPUT FROM THE CURRENT NASA FLIGHT MISSION, THE GLOBAL-SCALE OBSERVATIONS OF THE LIMB AND DISK (GOLD). GOLD IS SEEING MANY STRUCTURES IN THE EQUATORIAL ANOMALIES AFTER DARK (R. EASTES, PRIVATE COMMUNICATION), WHICH CAN ONLY BE INTERPRETED WITH A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE LOW LATITUDE ELECTRIC FIELD.

80NSSC20M0002 - THE NEED FOR A MARINE BIODIVERSITY OBSERVATION NETWORK (MBON) WAS SUMMARIZED BY DUFFY ET AL (2013), WHO CONCLUDED THAT AN MBON SHOULD INTEGRATE BIOLOGICAL LEVELS, FROM GENES TO HABITATS LINK BIODIVERSITY OBSERVATIONS TO ABIOTIC VARIABLES SITE PROJECTS TO INCORPORATE ENVIRONMENTAL FORCING AND BIOGEOGRAPHY AND MONITOR ADAPTIVELY TO ADDRESS EMERGING ISSUES. OUR DEMONSTRATION MBON PROJECT IN THE SANTA BARBARA CHANNEL, NOW IN ITS FIFTH YEAR, HAS ENDEAVORED TO MEET THESE GOALS. OUR MBON INCLUDES ALL LEVELS OF BIODIVERSITY, AND HAS DEVELOPED NEW TOOLS TO EXPAND THE SCALES OF PRESENT OBSERVATION AND A DATA MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO INTEGRATE DATA SOURCES. HERE WE PROPOSE TO MOVE TOWARD AN OPERATIONAL MODE AND EXPAND INTO A FULL REGIONAL MBON, COVERING THE ENTIRE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA BIGHT (SCB). SCB MBON HAS TWO BROAD OBJECTIVES, DESCRIBED BELOW. 1. INTEGRATE BIODIVERSITY DATA TO ENABLE INFERENCES ABOUT REGIONAL BIODIVERSITY. SYNTHESIZING INFORMATION RELEVANT TO BIODIVERSITY REQUIRES INTEGRATING HIGHLY HETEROGENEOUS DATA COLLECTED AT WIDELY DIFFERENT TEMPORAL AND SPATIAL SCALES. WE WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE EXISTING MBON DATASETS WHILE ADDING NEW DATA TO EXPAND OUR GEOGRAPHICAL SCOPE. 2. DEVELOP ADVANCED METHODS IN OPTICAL AND ACOUSTIC IMAGING AND GENOMICS FOR MONITORING BIODIVERSITY TO FILL GAPS IN OUR KNOWLEDGE OF MARINE BIODIVERSITY USING TWO CLASSES OF METHODS: REMOTE SENSING, OPTICAL AND ACOUSTIC IMAGERY FROM THE ECOSYSTEM SCALE DOWN TO THE SPECIES LEVEL, AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY FROM THE GENETIC SCALE UP THROUGH COMMUNITY LEVEL. THE APPROACH WE OUTLINE BELOW CONTINUES OUR EFFORT TO BUILD AN INTEGRATED MBON, ADDING DATA ON ECOSYSTEM COMPONENTS (E.G., PHYTOPLANKTON BIODIVERSITY) AS STEPPING STONES. PRODUCTS WILL BE PRIORITIZED WITH INPUT FROM PARTNERS AND STAKEHOLDERS, INCLUDING THE BUREAU OF OCEAN ENERGY MANAGEMENT, NATIONAL PARK SERVICE, NOAA S OFFICE OF NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARIES AND NATIONAL MARINE FISHERIES SERVICE, THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, AND THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA COASTAL WATER RESOURCES PROGRAM.

80NSSC20K0249 - THE HELIOPHYSICS SCIENCE DIVISION OF NASA SPONSORS RESEARCH FOCUSED ON THE STUDY OF THE DYNAMICS OF THE SUN, THE SOLAR WIND, AND THE INTERACTION BETWEEN THE SOLAR WIND, THE PLANETS, AND OTHER SOLAR WIND BODIES. THESE STUDIES INVOLVE THE USE OF DATA FROM A VAST ARMADA OF SPACECRAFT, SOUNDING ROCKETS, GROUND STATION OBSERVATORIES, TOGETHER CALLED THE "HELIOPHYSICS SYSTEM OBSERVATORY", COUPLED WITH INFORMATION FROM DATA MODELS AND DATA SIMULATIONS. ACCESS TO THESE DATA IS ENABLED THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE NASA HELIOPHYSICS SCIENCE DATA MANAGEMENT POLICY, WHICH STRESSES THE NEED TO MAXIMIZE OPEN ACCESS TO SCIENTIFICALLY RELEVANT DATA PRODUCTS. THE HELIOPHYSICS DATA ENVIRONMENT, HPDE, HAS WORKED TO SUPPORT THIS POLICY THROUGH THE CREATION OF VIRTUAL OBSERVATORIES, VXOS, SUCH AS THE VIRTUAL SPACE PHYSICS OBSERVATORY, VSPO, LOCATED AT GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER, GSFC. THE VXOS ARE CHARGED WITH MAINTAINING REGISTRIES CONTAINING THE INFORMATION REQUIRED TO ACCESS HELIOPHYSICS DATA PRODUCTS. AND, THE HPDE HAS FUNDED AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP AN XML SCHEMA CALLED SPACE PHYSICS ARCHIVE, SEARCH, AND EXTRACT, SPASE, IN ORDER TO DOCUMENT DATA PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS AND TO ENABLE UNIFORM DATA ACCESS. SPASE IS THE DESIGNATED STANDARD FOR DOCUMENTING HELIOPHYSICS DATA PRODUCTS, AS ADOPTED BY THE HELIOPHYSICS DATA AND MODEL CONSORTIUM. SPASE HAS ALSO BEEN ED AS THE PREFERRED WORLDWIDE STANDARD FOR DOCUMENTING HELIOPHYSICS DATA PRODUCTS AFTER THE APPROVAL OF AN IAGA RESOLUTION SUBMITTED AT THE COSPAR 2018 MEETING IN PASADENA. HERE, WE PROPOSE TO UTILIZE ACTIVE DATA ARCHIVE PRODUCT TRACKING, ADAPT, A COLLECTION OF UNIX SHELL SCRIPTS AND IDL SOFTWARE, THAT ENABLES AUTOMATIC GENERATION OF SPASE XML METADATA FILES TO DESCRIBE HELIOPHYSICS DATA PRODUCTS. THEN, THESE SPASE FILES WOULD BE SUBMITTED FOR REGISTRATION IN THE VXO SPASE METADATA GIT REPOSITORIES, WHICH ALLOWS THEM TO BE LEVERAGED TO EMPOWER COMMUNITY MEMBERS TO DISCOVER, BROWSE, AND ACCESS HELIOPHYSICS DATA. THE ADAPT EFFORT IS COMMITTED TO PROVIDING ACCURATE, PRECISE, AND COMPLETE SPASE DOCUMENTATION FOR DATA PRODUCTS THROUGH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF QUALITY CONTROL METHODS AND THE ADOPTION OF AND ADHERENCE TO UNIFORM METADATA POPULATING STANDARDS.

SPECIFICALLY, THE PROPOSED WORK SEEKS TO IMPROVE: 1. AGRICULTURAL AND RANGELAND PRODUCTIVITY, 2. AGRO-PASTORAL WATER USAGE, 3. TRANSHUMANT MOVEMENT MANAGEMENT IN WEST AFRICA. THIS GOAL WILL BE ACHIEVED BY MODERNIZING THE EXISTING AGRO-PASTORAL WD MONITORING SYSTEM USING STATE-OF-THE-ART, PUBLICLY AVAILABLE NASA SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS, AND THEN INTEGRATING THEM WITH SUB-SEASONAL CLIMATE FORECASTS FROM NASA S GEOS MODEL AND OTHER NORTH AMERICAN MULTIMODEL ENSEMBLE (NMME) SUBX MODELS. THE CLIMATE UPDATE AND EXPECTED IMPACTS ON AGRICULTURE AND RANGELAND, AND AGRO-PASTORAL WATER WILL BE COMMUNICATED THROUGH BI-WEEKLY BULLETINS IN FRENCH AND ENGLISH, AND FORECAST DATA WILL BE PROVIDED THROUGH SERVIR'S CLOUD BASED PLATFORMS. IN SO DOING THIS WORK DIRECTLY ADDRESS THE PRIMARY 'WEATHER AND CLIMATE' THEMATIC AREA NEED, TO LINK IN SUB-SEASONAL TO SEASONAL FORECASTS FOR IMPROVED WATER AND AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY. THE PROPOSED WORK WILL BUILD UPON PAST NASA AND SERVIR SUPPORTED PROJECTS AND WILL EMPOWER CLIMATE SERVICES BY AGRHYMET, ACMAD AND THEIR PARTNERS. SPECIFIC DECISIONS THAT THE PROPOSED EFFORT TARGETS ARE RELATED TO TYPE AND TIMING OF CROP PLANTING, FOOD STORAGE AND TRADE, FOOD INSECURITY RELIEF EFFORTS, FARMERS AND PASTURE LIVELIHOOD, AND PASTORALISTS AND HEARD MOVEMENTS. CLIMATE-INFORMED AND SEAMLESS AND REGULAR AVAILABILITY OF THE FORECASTS OF AGRICULTURE, RANGELAND, AND WATER PRODUCTIVITY WILL HELP THE DECISION MAKERS (E.G. REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL AGENCIES, AND NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS) PLAN TO MITIGATE ADVERSE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE VARIABILITY AND CHANGE IN PLANNING FOR THE AFOREMENTIONED DECISIONS. IN THE LONG-TERM, THE INTEGRATION OF SUB-SEASONAL CLIMATE FORECASTS WITH THOSE DECISIONS WILL IMPROVE WEST AFRICA S RESILIENCE AND WILL BETTER EQUIP IT FOR CLIMATE ADAPTATION. THE PROPOSED WORK IS HIGHLY RELEVANT TO THE GOALS OF NASA S STRATEGIC PLAN, NASA EARTH SCIENCE S GOALS, AND SERVIR S OVERARCHING GOAL. THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS PROPOSED WORK IS TO IMPROVE AGRICULTURAL AND RANGELAND PRODUCTIVITY, AND AGRO-PASTORAL WATER AND TRANSHUMAN MOVEMENT MANAGEMENT IN WEST AFRICA BY FACILITATING THE INTEGRATION OF SUB-SEASONAL SCALE CLIMATE FORECASTS IN THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESS. IN DOING SO, THE PROPOSED WORK ADDRESSES ONE OF THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVES OF THE NASA DECADAL SURVEY (2017), WHICH IS REDUCING CLIMATE UNCERTAINTY AND INFORMING SOCIETAL RESPONSE. THIS PROPOSAL ALSO DIRECTLY ADDRESSES ONE OF THE SCIENCE GOALS OF THE NASA EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE TO FURTHER THE USE OF EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE RESEARCH TO INFORM DECISIONS AND PROVIDE BENEFITS TO SOCIETY.
