|Solar System Workings (SSW) Program|
|The ROSES 2022 Solar System Workings (SSW) Program Appendix C.3|
|NOTICE: Proposers should not assume that NSF will provide access
to the Antarctic for the 2022-2023 field season. See C.3, section 4.5.
|| ||This program element does not have a proposal due date. Proposals may be submitted at any time, pending certain eligibility
timing issues related to resubmissions and duplicate proposal avoidance. See
C.3, section 3 for further information. ||  ||SSW now excludes investigations involving archival data from Earth-based observations, as these investigations are now covered by Appendix
C.6, Solar System Observations (SSO)||  ||The Solar System Workings (SSW) program no longer requires a separate relevance statement.||  ||Proposals to this program element may be submitted at any time without any preliminary statement such as a Notice of Intent or Step-1 proposal. Proposals submitted to this Program Element
must follow all formatting and context requirements that are described in program
Section IV(b)ii of the ROSES Summary of Solicitation. ||  ||
All data within the Planetary Data System (PDS) are available to support this call.
||  ||The standard rule for use of mission data has been that unless otherwise specified,
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 daysprior to the full proposal due date. For
No Due Date (NoDD) programs the 30-day rule applies to the submission date of the proposal rather than the due date. The calendar of record for data released in the PDS is the
PDS Data Release Calendar .
Proposals submitted to this Program Element must include a Data Management Plan (see
Appendix C.1, Section 3.7). This must be placed in a special section, not to exceed two pages in length, immediately following the References and Citations section for
the Scientific/Technical/Management portion of the proposal.
The Individual Proposer's Archive Guide (IPAG)
and Strategy for writing a good data management plan for a ROSES proposal are available on the PPI website.
|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|
|Refer to ROSES program element C.1, Section 4, for a detailed list of the data and astromaterials resources, and facilities available to proposers to this program element, and how to use them.|
|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.|
|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 Program.|
