The Decadal Survey for Earth Science and Applications from Space is well underway.  The steering committee has met twice and will meet again on November 7-10 in Irvine, CA.  All survey panels have completed two of their three scheduled meetings and will have their third meetings in February 2017.  Visit the ESAS website for background information about the survey and to watch past town hall presentations.  On our website, you can also view the public presentations made at steering committee or panel meetings as well as an archive of all responses to our requests for information.  We anticipate the survey will publish a pre-publication version of its final report in late 2017 with an edited and final version to follow shortly thereafter.


You are invited to attend two upcoming town hall meetings to learn more about the decadal survey and give your input.  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.

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 required. Please send us your input via email at:
