Assessment of the Benefits of Extending the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission: A Perspective from the Research and Operations Communities - Interim Report
This type of long-range planning is critical to our Agencies’ ability to optimize use of our unique Earth remote sensing capabilities to benefit all Americans. Further, such efforts will enhance our Nation’s leadership role in the Global Earth Observing System of Systems, fostering our work with countries around the world in a sustained commitment to advancing Earth sciences for the benefit of humankind.
I look forward to our continued work on this issue and the enhancement of the strong partnership between NASA and NOAA in advancing science of importance to our Nation.
