NASA Earth Science Exhibit

Welcome to the NASA Earth science toolkit for our virtual conference exhibit. Visit our focus areas including COVID-19 impacts and sea level rise, learn how to find and use Earth science data, explore opportunities and Earth technologies, and take a look at the “big picture” of NASA’s involvement in studying our home planet. Finally, visit our climate and Earth science resources and follow us on social media for the most up to date NASA Earth science news.


Observing COVID-19 Impacts

Throughout 2020, NASA is leveraging existing datasets, adapting ongoing NASA projects, and funding new research to better understand the pandemic’s effect on our global environment.



Rising Seas

Earth’s seas are rising, a direct result of a changing climate. Ocean temperatures are increasing, leading to ocean expansion. And as ice sheets and glaciers melt, they add more water. An armada of increasingly sophisticated instruments, deployed across the oceans, on polar ice and in orbit, reveals significant changes among globally interlocking factors that are driving sea levels higher.


Using Earth Science Data

NASA's Earth Science Data Systems (ESDS) program oversees the life cycle of NASA’s Earth science data—from acquisition through processing and distribution. Find data discovery and access resources, competitive programs, computing and modeling centers, and training programs to aid both new and experienced users.



Seeing the Big Picture

NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives and safeguard our future. But space is not all there is – learn more about everything from disaster response and capacity building to airborne programs and citizen science.
