Water is a critical resource in the western U.S. NASA’s Airborne Snow Observatory is giving California water agencies the first complete measurements of the water available in the Sierra snowpack along with data on when the snow will melt.
NASA invites people around the world to help us celebrate Earth Day 2017 by "adopting" one of 64,000 individual pieces of Earth as seen from space.
NASA will celebrate Earth Day on April 22 to engage the public in the Agency’s mission to better understand and protect our home planet. Download a high resolution of our Earth Day poster.
NASA is embracing small satellite designs, from tiny CubeSats to micro-satellites. These miniature marvels are providing many ways to collect science data and to demonstrate new technologies.
The Ocean Worlds Exhibit explores the origin of water, what other planets have oceans, how oceans change over time, and the sun's impact on ocean. High resolution files are available for download by clicking on each image.
NASA has launched an ozone sensor to help monitor long-term change in the ozone layer. This sensor, called SAGE III, will be installed on the International Space Station in 2017.
Major experiments that will look into a range of scientific disciplines from human health to atmospheric conditions on Earth are on their way to the International Space Station.
Technology Development: Nearly two decades of NASA technology investment in lidar systems and two-micron transmitters has resulted in a new capability for remotely measuring the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in Earth’s atmosphere. NASA has developed an Integrated Path Differential Absorption (IPDA) Lidar that incorporates highenergy, double-pulse lasers with high repetition rates. The compact lidar instrument aims to provide accurate, highresolution atmospheric CO2 column measurements from an airborne platform.
