This Town Hall session will provide an opportunity for the earth science community to interact with members of the leadership team and staff of the Earth Science Division (ESD) of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. Brief presentations by the ESD leadership will precede a longer opportunity for audience questions. Topics to be addressed in the Town Hall session include scientific accomplishments and programmatic milestones from the past year, current programmatic directions, and upcoming milestones. Recent developments in the Venture Class program and the non-flight parts of the NASA program (research and analysis, applied sciences, technology), NASA's involvement in interagency and international programs and NASA’s response to and preparation for guiding documents, including the prior (2007) and forthcoming (2017) decadal survey from the National Academy of Sciences will all be reviewed and discussed in this session.
