NEWS

The cycling of energy and water has obvious and significant implications for the health and prosperity of society. NEWS (NASA Energy and Water cycle Study) is envisioned to be part of the broader NASA end-to-end Earth science program. The overall program thus includes the transition of research findings and new capabilities to academic/public education and to practical applications, through partnerships with the academic community-at-large, federal agencies that oversee environmental protection and operational applications, and eventually private sector operators.

The ultimate goal of NEWS is a breakthrough improvement in the nations energy and water cycle prediction capability. NEWS is expected to demonstrate advanced global observation, data assimilation, and improved representation of physical processes in climate models, better prediction systems that can be used to quantify the hydrologic consequences of climate change and produce useful seasonal and longer-range hydrologic predictions based on observed initial values and changing boundary conditions.
