The HyspIRI mission will contribute to several science applications and the many benefits of the mission are highlighted in the societal relevance section of the NRC Decadal Survey. The HyspIRI Mission Study team is working closely with the NASA Applied Sciences program to maximize the benefits of the mission for applied sciences. The Applied Sciences Program focuses on economic, health, natural resources, and other themes to support both applied research and targeted, decision-support projects in 9 areas of national priority. Four of the nine areas are focus areas and HyspIRI contributes to all of these areas. They are: Disasters, Ecological Forecasting, Health and Air Quality and Water Resources. The examples below highlight how HyspIRI will contribute to some of these areas:
