Draft report on GEO Priorities and Frontiers, 2015-2020
An Invitation for Public Comment
SENT ON BEHALF OF GEORGE HORNBERGER, AC GEO, and ROGER WAKIMOTO, AD GEO
For the past several months, the NSF GEO Advisory Committee has been working with GEO staff on an update to its 2009 report, GEO Vision. This draft report, Dynamic Earth: GEO Priorities and Frontiers 2015-2020, takes a different perspective than the last report. In the current climate of limited resources, this document seeks to set actionable goals and objectives for the next five years. It is not meant to be a comprehensive document of all GEO programs but rather a near-term plan of GEO-wide priorities. More detailed information on specific programs and thrusts is currently part of each of the four GEO divisions’ planning activities (Atmosphere/Geospace, Earth, Ocean, and Polar).
The draft report is available at the NSF web site . We are very interested in receiving your feedback on this document and encourage you to not only review and comment but also to share the draft with your colleagues. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 12th.
Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you.
George Hornberger, Chair, AC GEO
