Practical Applications of Space Systems, Supporting Paper 7: Environmental Quality.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Assembly of Engineering.
This report summarizes the findings of one of fourteen panels that studied progress in space science applications and defined user needs potentially capable of being met by space-system applications. The study was requested by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and was conducted by the Space Applications Board. The panels comprised user specialists drawn from federal, state, and local governments and from business and industry. In this report, the Panel on Environmental Quality considers ways in which space systems can be used to determine: (1) what pollutants are introduced into the major environmental media; (2) what effects of these pollutants are manifested; and (3) the effectiveness of abatement and control actions. Environmental aspects examined are discussed in relation to air quality, water quality, public health, and land quality as related to land use. (MH)
