Our planet is changing on all spatial and temporal scales and studying the Earth as a complex system is essential in understanding the causes and consequences of climate change and other global environmental concerns. The purpose of NASA’s Earth Science Research and Analysis Program is to advance our scientific understanding of Earth as a system and its response to natural and human-induced changes and to improve our ability to predict climate, weather, and natural hazards.
NASA is helping improve the ability of forecasters to predict hurricane intensity by flying missions into and above the hearts of powerful storms.
Jason-3 is a satellite mission that supports scientific, commercial and practical applications related to sea level rise, ocean circulation, and climate change.
This satellite altimetry mission provides sea surface heights for determining ocean circulation, climate change and sea-level rise.
