Climate and Environmental Health

We approach climate and health challenges through the lens of One Health, recognizing that the health of people is connected to the health of animals, plants, and our environment. The ultimate goal of the group is to increase the use of NASA data, models, and expert knowledge to identify, protect, and improve public health.

Atmospheric scientists at NASA GSFC have created a model using a machine-learning technique combined with MODIS data from NASA's Aqua satellite to automatically detect ship tracks. This pair of images of the Pacific Ocean off of the west coast of North America demonstrates the model's ability to successfully detect ship tracks. The images were acquired at night on April 22, 2005, SEE MORE.
