NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Washington, selected the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, grants to support Earth-Sun System science goals and remote sensing programs. The maximum Massachusetts’ grant value is $737,484; for Woods Hole, $817,400.

NASA solicited proposals for a new Ocean Vector Winds Science Team to support the analysis and interpretation of ocean vector winds and other applications derived from Earth-observing satellite missions carrying scatterometers and polarimetric radiometers.

The research also supports the Vision for Space Exploration, NASA’s long- term plan to return astronauts to the moon and extend exploration to Mars and beyond.
