The report reviews NASA's solid-earth science strategy, placing particular emphasis on observational strategies for measuring surface deformation, high-resolution topography, surface properties, and the variability of the earthA’s magnetic and gravity fields. The report found that NASA is uniquely positioned to implement these observational strategies and that a number of agency programs would benefit from the resulting data. In particular, the report strongly endorses the near-term launch of a satellite dedicated to L-band InSAR measurements of the land surface, which is a key component of the U.S. Geological SurveyA’s hazards mitigation program and the multi-agency EarthScope program.aDepartment of Energy, The Department of Energy Strategic Plan, Washington, D.C., 36 pp., 2003, alt;http://strategicplan.doe.gov/full.pdfagt;; Department of Energy, Science ...
