Interest in Large field campaigns/ ecosystem-scale experiments to validate models.
International collaboration on sensors and field campaigns
Interest in cross disciplinary collaboration, not just across the physical & applied sciences but also with the social sciences
We need to communicate with each other more across science disciplines and ‘break out of our comfort zone’ to get results: eg. Reconciling the top down with bottom up approaches to CO2 flux estimations, including better AGB estimates into coupled models.
We need to do a better job at communicating with the public and decision makers about what it is that NASA does in Earth sciences.
We need to take into account what the decision making community needs when we do our science and try harder to make useful the results we already have
But not forget to quantify and explain the uncertainties
Importance of continuity of the data record but also a lot of excitement about new sensors (and disappointment about losing others)
Good progress on or attention to many tough issues – data continuity, data management, earth system model assessment, impacts of climate change, uncertainty estimates, human element in CCE, disturbance modeling…congratulations and keep up the good work.
We lack comprehensive plans for ecosystems and land cover science. (!)
The loss of space-borne lidar(DesDynI) is serious trouble - biomass remote sensing is primary limit to our progress at present.
(We should compare biomass maps - do they agree? When/where? what is needed to reach convergence?)
(We need to continue to progress towards closure of carbon budget studies. Progress has been made, but continued attention is needed.)
We have been challenged to develop models that include human actions (e.g. the impacts of socioeconomic shocks on human land management, human contributions to disturbance), and data to support these modeling efforts. Do we have the right data? Scientists?
Will models of human behavior ever be “useful?” Or is this just too hard? Someday will the room include many social scientists? We have already integrated biological and physical sciences.
Priorities and economics are driven by goals that are chosen based on values.. We need to consider values and ethics to properly prioritize our scientific agenda. Further, economics is driven by human values. We need ethicists to do integrated assessment properly.
