IN032:
How Information Systems Could Enable Earth Science Decadal Measurements





Session ID#: 23808

Session Description:
Future priorities for Earth science observations will likely be measurement driven where the most effective mission design to maximize science return will need to be identified and proven from a potential set of competing alternative design approaches. Indeed, to achieve the science from desired measurements, information system capabilities such as OSSEs, spacecraft constellation design tools, data quality assessment techniques, model evaluation, and others, will be necessary to enable an analysis/trade-off capability to satisfy the proposed measurement requirements. Information systems will have a critical role as one explores what an appropriate optimized mission could be from the measurement requirements. We invite contributions that examine existing gaps in measurement to mission design and analysis capabilities, tools to trade science objectives against measurements and mission design, data analytics to inform observation strategies given measurement interests, and capabilities needed spanning mathematical approaches through simulation and analysis to support achieving the measurement of interest.
