This can be achieved by enhancing the production of decision-support tools, initiating continuous improvements in collecting and synthesizing information, and by providing feedback to ongoing research efforts. NASA aims to better integrate the climate indicator work with assessment product generation and assessment tools projects at NASA Centers. Contributions are sought to enhance NASA’s participation in future NCAs by encouraging the developing and testing of potential indicators that best address the needs expressed in the NCA indicator vision (see, for example, and that leverage NASA’s capabilities.
