AMS Airborne Science Applications Use Workshop:
NASA AMS Transfer to USFS Operations
Lawrence Friedl, NASA HQ
The NASA Earth Science Division supports basic and applied research on the Earth system and its processes.
Primary efforts are to characterize, understand, and improve predictions of the Earth system.
In the course the research, NASA pursues innovative and practical uses of Earth science data to improve government, business, and NGOs’ decision-making activities.
Discovering and demonstrating innovative and practical uses of Earth Science in organizations’ policy, business, and management decisions.
