URGENT Request to the Mars science community and planetary scientists in general

The Planetary Science Division (PSD) has posted draft text for some ROSES 2014 calls at:

PSD invites feedback from the community. The draft solicitations include all 5 new core programs, as well as solicitations for the Dawn Focused Research Analysis Program, the Cassini Data Analysis and Participating Scientist Program, and the Exoplanets Research Program.

The various Analysis Group (AG) chairs have been asked to organize inputs from their respective communities for a meeting of the Planetary Sciences Subcommittee (PSS) meeting on Wednesday, January 22 (this week). In particular, they have been asked to comment on the following:

1. Do the calls correctly map to our science goals? Did all the appropriate elements from the old calls get carried over?
2. Do they address fully the science question?
3. Are there gaps in any of the solicitations?
4. Are the new Calls written clearly? If not, which sections are awkward or confusing?

Please provide any constructive feedback by email and by end of day Tuesday January 21 to Assessment Group (AG) chairs:

For CAPTEM, email Hap McSween¬† ([email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>)
For LEAG, email Jeff Plescia ([email protected]<mailto:[email protected]>)
