Review of Scientific Aspects of the NASA Triana Mission: Letter Report

This letter report, prepared by a Task Group of the National Research Council's Space Studies Board in response to a request by Congress in PL 106-74, assesses the scientific value of a planned satellite to make observations from an orbit between the Earth and the sun. The Task Group reviewed (1) the extent to which the mission's goals and objectives are consonant with published science strategies and priorities, (2) the likelihood that the planned measurements can contribute to achieving the stated goals and objectives, and (3) the extent to which the mission can enhance or complement other missions now in operation or in development.

This congressional briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The letter report was publicly released on March 8, 2000 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
