By Committee on NASA-NOAA Transition from Research to Operations, National Research Council
This record addresses the transition of study satellites, tools, and calculations into operational provider for correctly gazing and predicting the Earth's surroundings. those transitions, which happen largely among NASA and NOAA, are very important for holding the well-being, security, and prosperity of the country, and for reaching the imaginative and prescient of an Earth details method during which quantitative information regarding the total Earth process is quickly on hand to myriad clients. Many transitions were advert hoc, occasionally taking numerous years or perhaps many years to take place, and others have encountered roadblocks - loss of long-range making plans, assets, institutional or cultural changes, for example - and not reached fruition. "Satellite Observations of Earth's atmosphere" recommends new buildings and techniques that might enable seamless transitions from learn to perform.
