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!
