Dear All,

I've had a number of useful replies to my original
request, which I have passed on to Robert Massey for
consideration in the Royal Astronomical Society's
response.  The following came from Dan Hatton and
includes two new areas that I hadn't thought of.
I'd welcome comments on his ideas, and suggestions
of further big-capital-expenditure areas.

Dan's weather-satellite idea looks as if it could be
tied to volcano and volcanic-ash monitoring, which
I believe is being considered by Supersites and
Futurevolc - ?

Thanks!

Sheila Peacock

Two thoughts occur to me:

- Field trials of carbon capture and storage.  We could learn a lot of
   fundamental geophysics from these, to do with forced and
   buoyancy-driven flows in aquifers and aquitards, with and without
   surface tension effects and chemical reactions.  Progress, however,
   has been stalled ever since the 2010 Comprehensive Spending Review.

- The US Government Accountability Office has recently expressed
   concern about a reduction in weather forecast accuracy due to
   forthcoming retirements of American satellites, and delays and
   budget cuts to their replacements.  Maybe we in the UK, either
   unilaterally or in conjunction with our European partners, could
   launch more satellites of our own to reduce reliance on the US?
