NRC Earth science and applications study planned


  • Randy Showstack


The National Research Council (NRC) is organizing a new study, “Earth Science and Applications: A Community Assessment and Strategy for the Future.” The study, which will be organized in a manner similar to recent NRC decadal surveys in astronomy and astrophysics, solar and space physics, and solar system exploration, is intended to articulate priorities for Earth system science and the space-based observational approaches to address those priorities.
