Missions: Earth Systematic Missions
As a follow-on to the EOS missions, the Earth Systematic Missions (ESM) program will continue to advance our understanding of the climate system and climate change. The primary path toward meeting this objective is the mission outlined in the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Earth Science Decadal Survey document released in 2007.
