Virtual Workshop Sessions: NASA Airborne Platforms for Earth Science
July 29, 30, & 31, 2020
Join the National Academies’ Committee on the Future of Use of NASA Airborne Platforms to Advance Earth Science Priorities for a series of virtual workshop sessions Wednesday-Friday, July 29-31, 2020, from 12:30 – 5:00pm ET each day. These sessions will provide an opportunity for the Committee to gather information from the broader community to inform their report on future investments in airborne platforms for Earth science, with a focus research that utilizes the NASA DC-8 and similar aircraft. Each session will be focused on one of six high-level science areas, with discussions to include how airborne platforms could maximize contributions and/or provide unique inputs to integrated research strategy (i.e., satellite/airborne/surface/modeling) to answering the science questions posed in Thriving on Our Changing Planet: A Decadal Strategy for Earth Observation from Space (2018).
