Ensuring the Climate Record from the NPOESS and GOES-R Spacecraft:
Elements of a Strategy to Recover Measurement Capabilities Lost in Program Restructuring

This new report, from The National Academies, prioritizes resources, especially those related to climate research, that were lost or placed at risk following recent changes to NPOESS and the GOES-R series of polar and geostationary environmental monitoring satellites, and presents strategies to recover these capabilities.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 10, 2008 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
