The 2017-2027 Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from Space (ESAS 2017) will help shape science priorities and guide agency investments well into the next decade. The survey, sponsored by NASA, NOAA, and the USGS, is driven by input from the scientific community and policy experts. Some 100 community members are participating on the survey’s steering committee or one of its 5 study panels (which are focused on weather, climate, hydrology, ecosystems, and the solid Earth and natural hazards) and hundreds more have participated via white paper submissions and outreach events. Waleed Abdalati and Bill Gail, co-chairs of the survey steering committee, will lead a discussion on the study’s objectives, progress to date, and plans for completion in late 2017. Detailed information about the survey, including links to the study panels and the white papers, is posted at:
