NRC Released Second Decadal Survey for Solar and Space Physics
Sep 21, 2012
The report, “Solar and Space Physics: A Science for a Technological Society”, authored by the NRC Committee on a Decadal Strategy for Solar and Space Physics (Heliophysics), is a broadly-based assessment of the scientific priorities of the U.S. solar and space physics research enterprise for the period 2013-2022.
Requested by NASA and the National Science Foundation, this “decadal survey” follows the NRC’s previous survey in solar and space physics, “The Sun to the Earth--and Beyond: A Decadal Research Strategy in Solar and Space Physics,” which was completed in 2002 and published in final form in 2003.
