NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives and safeguard our future. Our researchers collect and study data from space, land, sea and air to tackle challenges facing the world today, from improved environmental prediction to natural hazard and climate change preparedness.
NASA’s view from space shows our planet is changing, but to really understand the nitty-gritty of these changes and what they mean for our future, scientists need a closer look. This year NASA takes you on a six-month world tour as we embark on major new field research campaigns to study regions of critical change around the world.
NASA is sending scientists from the edge of the Greenland ice sheet to the coral reefs of the South Pacific in 2016 to delve into challenging questions about how our planet is changing and what impacts humans are having on it. Although Earth science field experiments are nothing new for NASA, this year is a particularly active period as eight major new experiments will take scientists literally around the world on a wide range of science investigations.
