DECADAL SURVEY FOR EARTH SCIENCE AND APPLICATIONS FROM SPACE

 

The 2017-2027 Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from Space (ESAS 2017) will help shape science priorities and guide agency investments into the next decade.  The survey, sponsored by NASA, NOAA, and the USGS, is driven by input from the scientific community and policy experts.

NEWS

 

From the Survey Co-Chairs

The decadal survey committee has solicited input on science objectives and measurements through two separate requests for information (RFIs), the second of which closed in July of 2016. Although no longer accepting RFI responses, the survey committee is accepting additional input that is not focused on specific science or measurement suggestions. Any additional information related to the implementation or successful achievement of Earth science objectives is welcome and will be distributed to the committee and made public as appropriate. Contact us via email at: esas2017@nas.edu.
