|Solar System Workings (SSW) Program|
|The ROSES 2018 Solar System Workings (SSW) Program   Appendix C.3|
|NOTICE: Amended February 1, 2019. The proposal due date for this program element was previously temporarily changed to "TBD" as a result of the partial government shutdown. This amendment
releases new due dates for the effected program elements in Planetary Science. For this program element the new proposal due date is April 2, 2019.
||  || Proposals to this program element are subject to a relevance requirement in addition to and that supersedes those detailed in the ROSES Summary of Solicitation,
see   Section 2.5 of this program element .
Proposals that do not fulfill these requirements may be returned without review.||  ||This program element requests a Notice of Intent (NOI) by November 15, 2018. (An NOI is not required to submit a full proposal.) Proposals are due by April 2, 2019. ||  ||Questions concerning C.3 SSW may be directed to email@example.com.
All data within the Planetary Data System (PDS) are available to support this call.
Proposals to this Program Element must follow the rules for use of mission data given in
Appendix C.1, Section 3.4,
which states: Spacecraft mission data to
be used in proposed work must be available in the Planetary Data System (PDS) or an equivalent, publicly accessible archive at least 30 days prior to the full proposal submission
deadline, unless otherwise specified in the program call. If the data to be analyzed have issues that might represent an obstacle to analysis, the proposers must demonstrate
clearly and satisfactorily how such potential difficulties will be overcome.
Proposals submitted to this Program Element must include a Data Management Plan
(see Appendix C.1,
Section 3.6). The Individual Proposer's Archive Guide (IPAG) is available on the PPI website.
|Step 1 Proposal Due Date||Data Included in PDS by||Step 2 Proposal Due Date|
|Mission data are available from the Planetary Data System (PDS).|
|Data available from The Planetary Plasma Interactions (PPI) Node|
|Other Data Within PDS|
|The following Discipline Nodes have additional information:|
Cartography and Imaging Sciences Node
Ring-Moon Systems Node
Small Bodies Node
|Ancillary data (SPICE files) can be obtained from the NAIF Node|
|The Solar System Workings (SSW) Program Element supports research into atmospheric, climatological, dynamical, geologic, geophysical, and geochemical processes occurring on planetary bodies, satellites, and other minor bodies (including rings) in the Solar System. This call seeks to address the physical and chemical processes that affect the surfaces, interiors, atmospheres, exospheres, and magnetospheres of planetary bodies. A wide range of investigations will be covered, including theoretical studies, analytical and numerical modeling, sample-based studies of extraterrestrial materials, field work, laboratory studies, and data synthesis relevant to the physical and chemical processes affecting planetary systems.|
|Due to the broad nature of this program's mandate, it is open to a wide range of targets of interest and methods of investigation, but only accepts scientific investigations. Each proposal must present a scientific investigation to be conducted, what data and resources will be used, the investigation's methodology, and how the investigation will achieve closure of the proposal's goals. Although this program encourages the utilization of data from planetary missions and studies that produce data products (e.g., cartographic products, calibration data, moments calculations) to inform science investigations, it does not accept proposals eligible for funding by the Data Analysis Programs or the Planetary Data Archiving, Restoration, and Tools Program.|
