This study builds upon findings from the Moore Foundation Fire Immediate Response Workshop and investigates innovation for detecting and tracking costly fires that affect human life, infrastructure, and the Earth system.
The goal of this study is to assemble an interdisciplinary team of scientists, researchers and engineers to address the impact of COVID-19 response on the climate system, evaluate the system recovery over the next 1 - 5 years, formulate the hypotheses, and identify the measurements that can be obtained, leveraged and coordinated to test these hypotheses.
The focus of this study is to increase our current capacity to understand and predict the response of forest ecosystems to droughts and links between water and carbon processes in the earth’s biosphere and to identify space-borne observational approaches based on recent breakthroughs in remote sensing measurements of vegetation water content.
The focus of this study program is to advance progress towards the development of a global biodiversity observation system that couples space-based and ground-based approaches to quantifying biodiversity, to identify gaps in biodiversity traits and EBVs, and to explore how the fusion of diverse remote sensing measurements can contribute to monitoring biodiversity change.
The KISS workshop will be used to articulate a vision for coupled analysis of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) retrievals with satellite-based SIF and CO2 data, providing a new window into the carbon cycle and a revolution in our understanding of carbon-climate feedbacks and crop monitoring.
The focus of this study is exploring new multi-instrument approaches to doing ecosystem science from space. We will frame this more general topic around the amazing opportunity that in a few years, we could have simultaneous observations of ecosystem structure, functioning, and composition from the ISS.
The goals of this study program are to develop the science that can be teased out of spaceborne gazing, specific types of targets and applications, the resolution and spectral bands needed to achieve the science, and possible instrument configurations for future missions.
This study aimis to identify science observational/experimental projects that are uniquely addressed by airship vehicles, and determine which of these science goals could be simultaneously accommodated in one platform.
This study will explore integrated field programs and numerical studies to describe high frequency variability at the ocean-ice interface in Antarctica.
This study brings together scientists, who understand the imperative and scope of quantifying the global carbon budget, with technologists, who may be able to glimpse a possible way of solving it.
The focus of this study is on a newly developed capacity to monitor chlorophyll fluorescence from terrestrial vegetation by satellite.
This study will bring together space scientists, technologists, and mission designers across two workshops to conceive novel scientific observations and to resolve the technical roadblocks for new observations that are inaccessible to traditional spacecraft systems, yet enabled by small satellite systems.
This study focuses primarily on examination of concepts based on managing solar radiation into the climate systems.
This study will identify the technology developments required to obtain the space-borne measurements needed to significantly reduce this key climate projection uncertainty.
The objective of this study is to imagine remote sensing systems and processing techniques that will produce observations (Optical, SAR, or Lidar) with optimal spatial and temporal coverage, ground resolution and registration accuracy to measure deformation and surface changes that are relevant to investigate the internal and external dynamics of Earth and potentially other planets.
The participants reviewed the potential of spacebased and sub‐orbital observational and modeling approaches to monitor anthropogenic CO2 emissions in the presence of much larger natural fluxes from the exchange of CO2 between the land, atmosphere, and ocean.
The goals of this study is to bring together scientists from different branches of the climate research community to address key problems in the physics of climate feedbacks.
