SEC. 306. COORDINATION WITH THE NATIONAL OCEANIC AND ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION.

In the NASA Authorization Bill

(a) Joint Working Group.--The Administrator and the Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shall appoint a Joint Working Group, which shall review and monitor missions of the two agencies to ensure maximum coordination in the design, operation, and transition of missions where appropriate. The Joint Working Group shall also prepare the plans required by subsection (c).

(b) Coordination Report.--Not later than February 15 of each year, beginning with the first fiscal year after the date of enactment of this Act, the Administrator and the Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shall jointly transmit a report to the Committee on Science of the House of Representatives and the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate on how the earth science programs of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA will be coordinated during the fiscal year following the fiscal year in which the report is transmitted.

(c) Coordination of Transition Planning and Reporting…….

(d) Limitation.--…..


In Jan 06 the JWG Identifies

Near-Term Opportunities

  • “In this report ‘near-term’ signifies only those capabilities that are currently included or are being actively considered for inclusion in the budgets submitted by NASA or NOAA prior to FY09. “

  • Observing Capability Transition

  • Mission Extension

  • Data Record Production and Stewardship

    • Climate Data Records

    • Data Archive and Access

  • Data Utilization: Several research testbeds, most notably the JCSDA and the SPoRT Center, have been established to accelerate the use of data from research satellites in operational forecast and/or warning systems. The JWG will evaluate the activities of these testbeds and provide recommendations to agency management about the opportunities available to accelerate use of research data.

  • Tools and Standards Transition.


Research to Operations is Complicated….
