NEWS AND INFORMATION • Status of Sea-WiFS, TOPEX and NSCAT: News from NASA

W. Stanley Wilson
First Paragraph

Following the meeting of the EOSAT Board of Directors on October 6, 1988, an agreement-in-principle is being refined by NASA and EOSAT concerning the flight of Sea-WiFS on the Landsat-6 satellite in late 1991, subject of course to success with a pending funding initiative (see list below for definitions of acronyms). The mission specifications are not fully defined at this time, but it is anticipated that the essential requirements of the research community will be met with this mission.
