Along with advancing fundamental understanding of the Earth, NASA's observations and research are applied to help
meet the monitoring needs of partner agencies. Together, NASA and its partners apply this knowledge to protect
life and property and assist in the stewardship of the planet.
In particular, NASA and NOAA have a long history of transitioning research
observations into routine operational status.
GEO-CAPE will provide direct societal benefit in several national priority areas including Health & Air Quality, Oceans, Water Resources, Climate,
Agriculture, Disasters, and Ecological Forecasting.
