In 2000, the nation's next-generation nationwide Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental satellite tv for pc process (NPOESS) application expected paying for six satellites for $6.5 billion, with a primary release in 2008. via November 2005, even if, it turned obvious that NPOESS may overrun its price estimates via a minimum of 25 percentage. In June 2006, the deliberate acquisition of six spacecraft was once decreased to 4, the release of the 1st spacecraft used to be behind schedule till 2013, and several other sensors have been canceled or descoped in strength. to envision the affects of those adjustments, relatively these linked to weather study, and how one can mitigate these affects, NASA and NOAA requested the NRC so as to add this job to its ongoing "decadal survey," Earth technological know-how and functions from area. The sponsors and the NRC agreed to deal with this activity individually and to base its research on a huge workshop. This publication offers summaries of discussions on the workshop, which integrated periods at the measurements and sensors initially deliberate for NPOESS and GOES-R; new release of weather facts files; mitigation innovations, together with the position of overseas companions; and cross-cutting issues.
