In recent years, populations of rabbit fish and other dietary staples for the people of Palau are dwindling. The country is now building sustainable aquaculture farms in the ocean with help from NASA satellite data.
When Hurricane Irma hit southern Florida in September of 2017, the storm buffeted coastal mangrove forests with winds strong enough to rip off leaves and branches and snap tree trunks. Of the mangrove forest damaged by Hurricane Irma, about 83% recovered after the first year. But the rest didn’t,... Read More
To mark the 10th International Space Apps Challenge, the largest annual global hackathon in the world, NASA is collaborating with nine space agency partners to bring the event to even more communities Oct. 2-3, 2021.
Soil is the foundation of our food systems, and sustainable farming depends upon healthy soil, which has impacts far beyond the field on air, water and climate. Wind and water, hastened by human activity and climate change, erode the richest soil at the surface.
NASA is inviting media to learn more about an upcoming airborne science campaign to study intense summer thunderstorms over the central United States, which will aid scientists in their understanding of how such storms affect Earth’s atmosphere and climate change.
The finding comes out of an effort to map where vegetation is emitting and soaking up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
NASA and university scientists will be studying the intense summer thunderstorms over the central United States to understand their effects on Earth’s atmosphere and how it contributes to climate change.
While one science instrument mapped the dome of high pressure that settled over the southwestern U.S. in early July, another captured ground surface temperatures.
While scientists at our partner institutions are directly focusing on shark conservation, NASA’s Earth-observing satellites collect key information about sharks’ habitat – the ocean.
NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) have formed a first-of-its-kind strategic partnership to observe Earth and its changing environment.
The science instrument mapped the dome of high pressure that settled over the northwestern U.S. and western Canada in late June, sending temperatures into the triple digits.
NASA Supports Drought Resilience in the American West
With the most advanced Earth-observing laser instrument NASA has ever flown in space, scientists have improved their maps of hidden lake systems under the West Antarctic ice sheet.
In the mid-2030s, every U.S. coast will experience rapidly increasing high-tide floods, when a lunar cycle will amplify rising sea levels caused by climate change.
