NASA’s Earth Science Division (ESD) team will present an update of status and plans, with significant time for discussion with the audience, which is expected to be comprised of current and potential investigators in ESD’s ocean programs and/or those of its partner agencies, as well as current and potential users of its data and models. Highlighted items include status of operating and future satellite missions dedicated to ocean observing; implementation of Venture Class activities focusing on air-sea exchange, sub mesoscale oceanography, and ocean ecology and biogeochemistry; evolution of and plans for the research, applied sciences, and technology elements; contribution to interagency and international Earth observation and global change programs, and response to and preparation for community-based guiding documents, such as the U.N. Decade of Ocean Science. This year’s Town Hall will also continue to emphasize ESD's progress in implementing the recommendations of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine Decadal Survey, Thriving on Our Changing Planet: A Decadal Strategy for Earth Observation from Space, released in 2017.
