Description of Document:

satellite: Geostationary satellite observations of chemically reactive trace gases will provide unique insight into the evolution and extent of air pollution with the temporal resolution necessary to address air quality on a daily basis.

The NRC emphasized that if Earth scientists are to foster applications and extend the societal benefits of their work, they must also understand the research-to-applications chain, which includes transforming satellite measurements into useful information and distributing that information in a form that is understandable and meets the needs of both public- and private sector managers, decision makers, and policy makers.
