Paper Abstract

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is studying options for future space-based missions, building upon the measurements to be made by the first series of Earth Observing System (EOS) missions. One mission under consideration is the NPOESS Preparatory Project (NPP), a cooperative mission of NASA and the National Polar-orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System (NPOESS). This mission would utilize new instrument technologies being developed by the NPOESS, with additional NASA requirements, to continue certain measurements from the first series of EOS missions. By flying in the 2005 time period, NPP would provide an early demonstration and validation of new instrument technologies and algorithms in support of future NPOESS missions and extend the critical time series measurements of EOS.
