FLASH: HAQAST Website Features Education Materials for All Ages

HAQAST aims to provide resources not only for the scientists of today, but for the next generation, as well. Based on resources from HAQAST PIs and their colleagues, we’ve created a page featuring educational materials suitable for a wide range of ages and levels of sophistication. Visit the Education page to learn about NASA Aura, NASA Earth Observatory, NASA Earth Observatory for Kids, and more!


FLASH: HAQAST Members Contribute to 2017 – 2027 Decadal Survey

The US National Research Council has just released its second decadal survey, Thriving on Our Changing Planet: A Decadal Strategy for Earth Observations from Space. The decadal survey is a comprehensive scientific and policy overview, written by a large team of subject-matter experts, that provides suggestions and guidance for the coming decade of federal Earth observation. Two HAQAST members (Bryan Duncan and Ted Russell) are among the authors of the Weather and Air Quality panel, HAQAST collaborator Steve Ackerman co-chaired the panel, and team leader Tracey Holloway was a reviewer, all of which is evident from the panel’s focus on air quality and public health!
