The new report: NASA Challenges and Opportunities for Research in Earth Surface and Interiors has just been released officially. The main link to download is here: PDF.
I was honored to be on the writing team and contributed to the surface process, human activities, topography, increasingly interconnected world, and professional development portions. We were charged with revisiting and updating the 2002 Solid Earth Science Working Group report “Living on a Restless Planet” (the SESWG Report). The update follows the SESWG framework and updates on many of the science and technology topics and will help to chart NASA Earth Sciences and Interiors priorities.
Thanks to the rest of the committee, our co chairs James Davis and Louise Kellogg, and Ben Phillips from NASA.
