The 2017–2027 National Academy of Sciences Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from Space

Session ID#: 10124

Session Description:
In 2007, the National Research Council issued its inaugural “decadal survey” of all Earth sciences that could benefit from spaceborne observations (  The next survey, covering a 10-year period starting in late 2017, is again sponsored by NASA, NOAA, and the USGS.  A key element of the survey will be a canvas of the community for new ideas about missions, programs, and capabilities to advance Earth system science and to ensure the nation maintains healthy, robust, and successful research and application programs.  Representatives from the survey will be on hand to lead a discussion towards these objectives.
