    Abstract: The National Land Remote Sensing Education, Outreach and 
Research Activity (NLRSEORA) is an effort to develop a U.S. nationwide 
consortium to build the capability to receive, process, and archive 
remotely-sensed data for the purpose of providing access to university 
and state organizations in a ready-to-use format and to expand the 
science of remote sensing through education, research/applications 
development, and outreach in areas such as environmental monitoring to 
include the effects of climate variability on water availability and 
phenology, natural resource management, and disaster analysis. 
Respondents are submitting proposals to acquire funding for a national 
(U.S.) program to promote the uses of space-based land remote-sensing 
data and technologies through education and outreach at the State and 
local level and through university-based and collaborative research 
projects. The information collected will ensure that sufficient and 
relevant information is available to evaluate and select a proposal for 
funding. A panel of USGS Core Science Systems Mission Area managers and 
scientists will review each proposal to evaluate the technical merit, 
requirements, and priorities identified.
    This notice concerns the collection of information that is 
sufficient and relevant to evaluate and select proposals for funding. 
We will protect information from respondents considered proprietary

CFR 250.197, ``Data and information to be made available to the public 
or for limited inspection.'' Responses are voluntary. No questions of a 
``sensitive'' nature are asked. We intend to release the project 
abstracts and primary investigators for awarded/funded projects only.
