ESA's former Earth Science Advisory Committee has been changed, in name and in fact. Now called the Advisory Committee for Earth Observation, it is the senior advisory body to the Director of Earth Observation Programmes, acting as the Director General's representative, on all matters concerning Earth sciences included in ESA's Earth observation science programme.

Composed of 13 members and one chair plus two ex-officio members, all of whom are senior European scientific experts, the Advisory Committee for Earth Observation (ACEO) is the main interpreter of the views and needs of the European scientific community on access to space experimentation and data exploitation in Earth science programmes.
