A white paper from a NASA workshop to address the challenge of advanced planning for the Earth Science Division is now available [PDF].

The workshop was held at Goddard Space Flight Center in October 2014. It was organized and managed by Dr’s. Forrest Hall (NASA GSFC) and Scott Goetz (WHRC) and involved 50 scientists from institutions and agencies including NASA, USGS, USFS, NSF, NOAA and DOE engaged in terrestrial ecology, carbon cycle, land use and land cover change, and biodiversity (TECLUB) research. Input from an even wider community was collected during a 30 day open comment period on an earlier draft. The final report identifies priority science questions, analysis frameworks and measurement needs for the TECLUB communities over the next decade.
