This report summarizes the findings of one of fourteen panels that studied progress in space science applications and defined user needs 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. This publication reports the panel's study of user requirements in nine areas: (1) Weather and Climate; (2) Uses of Communications; (3) Land Use Planning; (4) Agriculture, Forest, and Range; (5) Inland Water Resources; (6) Extractable Resources; (7) Environmental Quality; (8) Marine and Maritime Uses; and (9) Materials Processing in Space. Also included is an assessment of the space transportation system capabilities for user requirements and a section on conclusions and recommendations.(RH)
