In Chapter 2, the committee describes the observational portion of a strategy for obtaining an integrated
set of space-based measurements in the decade 2010-2020. The 17 missions listed in Tables II.1 and II.2
form the centerpiece of this strategy. In Part IIChapter 4the committee summarizes in alphabetical
order the 17 recommended missions, providing a more detailed discussion of each. Each mission summary
also contains references to the particular sections in the panel reports in Part III (Chapters 5-11) in which
the missions are discussed, as well as index numbers that point to related responses to the committee’s
request for information.
