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.
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.
