The LWS Science (formerly TR&T) element in 2021 ROSES has been released. The ultimate goal of the LWS Program is to provide a scientific understanding of the system that leads to predictive capability of the space environment conditions at Earth, other planetary systems, and in the interplanetary medium. Every year the LWS Program solicits Focused Science Topics (FSTs) that address some part of this goal.

To be responsive, proposed investigations must have objectives suitable for one of the four following Focused Science Topics (FSTs) for proposals this year:

  1. Impact of Terrestrial Weather on the Ionosphere - Thermosphere;
  2. Pathways of Cold Plasma through the Magnetosphere;
  3. Understanding the Large-Scale Evolution of the Solar Wind throughout the Heliosphere through the Solar Cycle; and
  4. Towards a Quantitative Description of the Magnetic Origins of the Corona and Inner Heliosphere.

Step-1 proposals are due September 8, 2021.

Step-2 proposals are due November 18, 2021.

A new LWS Tools and Methods (LWSTM) call for ROSES proposal has been released. The call solicits tools, techniques and/or methods that enable critically needed science advances in the area of heliophysics research covered by LWS objectives, see https://science.nasa.gov/heliophysics/programs/living-with-a-star. LWSTM seeks innovative adaptations and applications of emerging AI techniques, concepts, methodologies, etc. to demonstrate their feasibility and potential to increase science return, as well as to inform missions in heliophysics research disciplines of promising techniques and capabilities. The LWSTM program element is intended to allow heliophysics research to be an early, innovative, and less risk-averse adopter of AI tools and techniques, especially in areas with potential for high payoff, if successful.

Proposed tools and/or methods must be able to proceed expeditiously leading to completion in one and half years.

LWSTM has been added to ROSES-2021 as program element B.18. Step-1 Proposals are due July 1, 2021 and Step-2 proposals are due August 31, 2021.
