The VALUABLES Consortium is working to build capacity within the Earth science community to quantify the value of Earth observations. Our tutorials, webinars, workshops, and digital media describe the terms, concepts, and methods scientists can use to develop rigorous impact assessments for specific satellite data applications.
With this knowledge, Earth scientists can play a more integral role in the work needed to quantify and build awareness about the socioeconomic benefits of Earth science applications.
