Groundwater fluxes across interfaces by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 163 libraries worldwide
Estimates of groundwater recharge and discharge rates are needed at many different scales for many different purposes. These include such tasks as evaluating landslide risks, managing groundwater resources, locating nuclear waste repositories, and estimating global budgets of water and greenhouse gasses. Groundwater Fluxes Across Interfaces focuses on scientific challenges in (1) the spatial and temporal variability of recharge and discharge, (2) how information at one scale can be used at another, and (3) the effects of groundwater on climate and vice versa
Review of NASA's longitudinal study of astronaut health by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
Engineering challenges to the long-term operation of the International Space Station by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 37 libraries worldwide
An assessment of balance in NASA's science programs by Committee on an Assessment of Balance in NASA's Science Programs( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
When the space exploration initiative was announced, Congress asked the NRC to review the science NASA proposed to carryout under the initiative. It also asked the NRC to assess whether this program would provide balanced scientific research across the established disciplines supported by NASA in addition to supporting the new initiative. In 2005, the NRC released three studies focusing on a portion of that task, but changes at NASA forced the postponement of the last phase. This report presents that last phase with an assessment of the health of the NASA scientific disciplines under the budget requests imposed by the exploration initiative. The report also provides an analysis of whether the science budget appropriately reflects cross-disciplinary scientific priorities
Near-earth object surveys and hazard mitigation strategies : interim report by National Reserch Council (U.S.)( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
The United States is currently the only country with an active, government-sponsored effort to detect and track potentially hazardous near-Earth objects (NEOs). Congress has mandated that NASA detect and track 90 percent of NEOs that are 1 kilometer in diameter or larger. These objects represent a great potential hazard to life on Earth and could cause global destruction. NASA is close to accomplishing this goal. Congress has more recently mandated that by 2020 NASA should detect and track 90 percent of NEOs that are 140 meters in diameter or larger, a category of objects that is generally recognized to represent a very significant threat to life on Earth if they strike in or near urban areas. Achieving this goal may require the building of one or more additional observatories, possibly including a space-based observatory.<br /> <br /> Congress directed NASA to ask the National Research Council to review NASA's near-Earth object programs. This interim report addresses some of the issues associated with the survey and detection of NEOs. The final report will contain findings and recommendations for survey and detection, characterization, and mitigation of near-Earth objects based on an integrated assessment of the problem
Toward an Earth Science Enterprise federation : results from a workshop by National Research Council Staff( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
Upgrading the space shuttle by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
The space shuttle is a unique national resource. One of only two operating vehicles that carries humans into space, the space shuttle functions as a scientific laboratory and as a base for construction, repair, and salvage missions in low Earth orbit. It is also a heavy-lift launch vehicle (able to deliver more than 18,000 kg of payload to low Earth orbit) and the only current means of returning large payloads to Earth. Designed in the 1970s, the shuttle has frequently been upgraded to improve safety, cut operational costs, and add capability. Additional upgrades have been proposed and some are under way-to combat obsolescence, further reduce operational costs, improve safety, and increase the ability of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to support the space station and other missions
Review of NASA's earth science enterprise research strategy for 2000-2010 by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
Preventing the forward contamination of Europa by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Factors affecting the utilization of the International Space Station for research in the biological and physical sciences by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
The mission of microgravity and physical sciences research at NASA by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Review of NASA's solid-earth science strategy by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide

Early in 1984, NASA asked the Space Science Board to undertake a study to determine the principal scientific issues that the disciplines of space science would face during the period from about 1995 to 2015. The findings of this study are published in this volume
