Climate Change Education


     NASA Peer Review Candidates


From:            Diane Clayton, NASA Global
Climate Change Education Project Manager

 Tamra Ross, NASA Research and Education Support Services


Subject:         Availability for NASA Global Climate
Change Education Online Peer Review


NOTE:  This email is for information gathering purposes. Willingness
to participate in the peer review process does not guarantee a proposal
will be assigned. The number of available qualified reviewers may exceed
the number of reviewers needed.

NASA Research and Education Support Services (NRESS) is seeking persons
willing to serve as online reviewers for the Global Climate Change Education
(GCCE) NASA Research Announcement (NRA) NNH08ZNE005N. Peer review is
a critical component of the decision-making process for awarding projects
under this NRA. It assists in identifying high-quality projects by engaging
individuals with different backgrounds, perspectives and areas of expertise
in the review process. 


The GCCE NRA is designed to improve the quality of global climate change
and Earth system science education at the elementary, secondary, and undergraduate
levels.  Each funded proposal is expected to take advantage of NASA’s
unique contributions in climate science to enhance students’ academic
experiences and/or to improve educators’ abilities to engage and stimulate
their students.


Detailed information regarding proposal requirements and evaluation criteria
are contained in the NRA. This document can be viewed through the NASA
Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES)
at http://nspires.nasaprs.com
<http://nspires.nasaprs.com/> .
 Select “Solicitations” and then “Open Solicitations”.


The online review period is scheduled for the November-December time frame.
Proposals will be approximately 15-20 pages in length. Non-civil servants
will receive an honorarium of $75 for each proposal fully reviewed and
submitted through NSPIRES by the close of the review period.


Please view the solicitation to determine your interest in serving as a
peer reviewer and
respond to the following by return e-mail to GCCEREVIEWERS9 at nasaprs.com
