Challenges and Opportunities for Research in Earth Surface and Interior (ESI) at NASA 

Date and Time: Monday, 14 December 2015: 18:15 - 19:15 
Location: Moscone West, Room 2010 

A workshop was held during November 2–3, 2015, in Arlington, Virginia, for the purpose of revisiting the strategic plan for the NASA Earth Surface and Interior (ESI) Focus Area.  The existing strategic plan was set down in the 2002 document Living on a Restless Planet, the report of the Solid Earth Science Working Group (SESWG) (http://solidearth.jpl.nasa.gov/seswg.html).  For more than a decade, this important document has provided core guidance for ESI program development and scientific rationale for ESI-related NASA missions.  The goal of this workshop was to update the long-term science strategy outlined in SESWG.

In this Town Hall provide an opportunity to provide discussion regarding the main conclusions of the workshop, the process for writing the workshop report, future opportunities for community input, and the expected timeline for the report.  The Town Hall will provide an early opportunity for discussion of the major science questions that will frame the discussion in the report.

This Town Hall takes place during the AGU Ice Breaker.  Attend the Town Hall and head over to the Ice Breaker, or grab a beer at the Ice Breaker and enjoy the discussion at the workshop!
