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. The Technology Panel's activities were focused in general on the earth observation or remote-sensing requirements of all user panels. Among the panel's comments was that every earth observation user-oriented panel described a requirement for frequent repetitive observation either over prolonged periods from sun-synchronous orbits or continuously from geostationary orbit. The Panel also concluded that there is a clear requirement for additional research on the relationship of measurements which can be made from space to basic parameters of interest to users. (MH)
