CREW: National Aeronautics and Space Administration

On January 22, 2007, CREW filed a FOIA request with NASA for records related to the decision of the Bush administration to reduce funding of scientific programs affecting our ability to analyze and predict hurricanes and other natural disasters as well as global climate change. Fourteen months later, on March 24, 2008, NASA made its first response and indicated it had forwarded the request to other NASA facilities. Many of the documents appear to be quite technical in nature and CREW seeks any input on the extent to which any of the documents reveal the underlying reasons for the reductions in funding.
