The DOC/NOAA Forecast Systems Laboratory (FSL), NASA Science and Aeronautics Research Mission Directorates, and DOE Office of Science are sponsoring the second workshop on the Utilization of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Global Climate Change Research on December 7-8, 2004 at the David Skaggs Research Center in Boulder, CO. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the technologies needed for transformational Earth observation capabilities, enabled by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), that will directly support the Nation's weather research efforts and climate change observations charge under the U.S. Climate Change Science Program. It also supports the goal of the first-ever U.S. draft plan to monitor the Earth, which was released last month, and which will, over time, benefit people and economies around the world by improving the ability to monitor, understand and predict changes to the Earth. The workshop will focus on missions concepts developed in the August 3-4, 2004 precursor workshop held at Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla, CA.

Consider this workshop an opportunity to provide input on NASA, NOAA and DOE's future teamwork in suborbital observations supporting climate change and weather research, to foster collaborations and to develop possible partnerships.
