VALUABLES is a collaboration with NASA to measure how satellite information benefits people and the environment when it is used to make decisions.


Satellite information can help us understand air quality, water quality, deforestation, land use, urban sprawl, and many other processes on Earth.

The Consortium for the Valuation of Applications Benefits Linked with Earth Science (VALUABLES) is a cooperative agreement between Resources for the Future (RFF) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). We are based at RFF’s Washington, DC headquarters.

Created in 2016 with a $3.5 million award from NASA, we are working to quantify and communicate how the use of satellite information in decisions can improve outcomes for people and the environment. The consortium brings together economists and decision scientists, NASA scientists and remote sensing experts, and members of the wider Earth science community.

Our work is motivated by the science of the value of information (VOI), a microeconomic approach to determining what information is worth by assessing the difference in how people make a decision with and without this information.
