In response to the 2005 NASA Authorization Act and to provide a strategy document t to guide implementation of the 2006 NASA Strategic Plan in the areas of Earth and space science, the Science Mission Directorate (SMD) prepared a 2006 draft science plan. To help guide the SMD as it completes this effort, NASA asked the NRC to review the draft science plan. This letter report provides general observations about the plan, and assessments of the plan s responsiveness to recommendations from recent NRC studies, its attention to interdisciplinary aspects and scientific balance, the plan s utility to stakeholders, and its general readability and clarity. Finally the report presents recommendations for improving the plan.
