Whitepaper #165 submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Topics: field studies; habitability and water; other science themes: Terrestrial Planets and Moons
Field science allows us to use the complexity of natural systems to study fundamental processes and enhance the return of NASA missions. We advocate increased funding for field science and present solutions to some challenges facing field science to encourage increase science return, make field expeditions safer, and the data more accessible.
