The report from the steering committee for the 2017-2027 National Academies’ decadal survey for Earth Science and Applications from Space (“ESAS 2017”) is scheduled for release by December 31, 2017. Like the inaugural survey, which published its final report in 2007, ESAS 2017 was requested by NASA, NOAA, and the USGS. The survey's overarching objective is to develop consensus recommendations from the environmental monitoring and Earth science and applications communities for an integrated and sustainable approach to the conduct of the U.S. government’s civilian space-based Earth-system science programs. Survey members will be present to discuss the report’s findings and recommendations and to engage the community in a discussion about report implementation. A PDF of the report is posted at www.nas.edu/esas2017 where details about the survey's organization may also be found.
