The overall vision of the ESSO is to excel in knowledge and technology enterprise for the earth system
science realm towards socio-economic benefit of the Indian sub-continent and in the Indian Ocean region.
Langley manages the Earth System
Science Pathfinder program for NASA's Science Mission Directorate.
In recent years, our society has become more aware of the delicate balance of the Earth system
, and has devoted much time and energy to debates over how best to ensure a sustainable future for the planet.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Earth System
Science Organization-Ministry of Earth Sciences (ESSO-MoES) and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), USA was signed here in New Delhi last month for cooperation in Earth System
The satellite will provide scientists with critical insight into the dynamics of the entire Earth system
, including climate, clouds, oceans, and vegetation.
After the IPCC didn't provide a prediction of ice sheet fate in its Fourth Assessment Report due to a lack of data, the Department of Energy launched SEACISM (within the Ice Sheet Initiative for CLimate ExtremeS, or ISICLES) to improve ice sheet dynamics in Earth system
