The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee on “Advancing a Systems Approach to Studying the Earth” requests your input. The committee is tasked to develop a compelling vision for a systems approach to studying the Earth and to identify the facilities, infrastructure, coordinating mechanisms, computing, and workforce development needed to support that vision. The committee seeks feedback from the scientific community across all components of the Earth system including the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, geosphere, and human institutions and infrastructure. Your answers to this questionnaire will help the authoring committee better understand the range of issues associated with this complex topic.
