Its a little bit unclear whether we should propose questions related to RST for conservation issues, or propose ideas dealing with RST for conservation issues?
If yu mean questions, could you send us one or two examples, thus we can bring some proposals.

Subject: [Coral-List] Remote sensing, conservation, and sustainable resource apps?
Can we use our science and remote sensing technologies in conservation and
sustainable use of resources? NASA is interested in addressing issues in
biodiversity, sustainability and conservation biology using remote sensing
technologies. A group of researchers has been asked to work with their
different science communities to help define the top 10 questions for which
solutions would require remote sensing methods.
If you could, please send ideas on questions directly relevant to
conservation (and specifically not on questions of technological
advancements) before September 15. If it is easier to provide input by
phone, let me know and let's coordinate a phone call.
Our specific guidance is that questions should be:
Â· dependent on remote sensing technologies to answer
Â· answerable through a realistic research design
Â· allow a factual answer that does not depend on value judgments
Â· address important gaps in conservation knowledge
Â· not formulated as a general topic area
Â· not answerable with â€œit all dependsâ€
Â· unlikely to be answerable with yes or no
Some guidance on what this group would be looking for can be found in:
Sutherland, W. J., Adams, W. M., Aronson, R. B., Aveling, R., Blackburn, T.
M., Broad, S., Ceballos, G., et al. (2009). One Hundred Questions of
Importance to the Conservation of Global Biological Diversity.
Conservation Biology, 23(3), 557-567
Thank you very much for your feedback.
