The Way Ahead for Space-Based Weather Monitoring
"The Way Ahead for Space-Based Weather Monitoring" panel discussion focused on the increasingly common and highly visible dramatic shifts in global weather trends, and our degrading ability to monitor and predict these trends from our space-based assets. In the face of declining budgets, our capabilities are reaching the end of their useful lives. This panel attempted to answer the question, "Where do we go from here?" Moderated by Christopher J. Scolese, Director, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, the panel featured Jack Kaye, Associate Director for Research, Earth Science Division, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC; Jon Kirchner, President and Chief Operating Officer, GEOOptics, Inc., Gladwyne, PA; John Murphy, Director, Office of Science and Technology, National Weather Service (NOAA), Silver Spring, MD; and Clark Snodgrass, Director of GeoInt, Sensing, and Science Programs, Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Redondo Beach, CA.
