NASA Collaboration Using Harvard Technology Could Advance Earth Science from Orbit

Measuring the polarization of scattered sunlight lets scientists extrapolate what is in the atmosphere.

Impacts to St. Vincent from the La Soufrière Volcano Eruption

In early April, the La Soufrière volcano on the island of Saint Vincent violently erupted - the first major eruption since 1979. Researchers from the NASA Disasters program area, who have been monitoring the volcanic activity on Saint Vincent since January, used satellite data to observe impacts to the island and local communities.

New NASA Data Sheds (Sun) Light on Climate Models

Scientists at the University of Michigan, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and University of Colorado Boulder recently used TSIS-1 SSI data in a global climate model for the first time.

Earth Day Connections: NASA Study Predicts Less Saharan Dust in Future Winds

Temperature and weather systems each interact with, and are influenced by, a multitude of Earth systems, each affected by the warming climate. One of those is the global transport of massive dust plumes from one continent to another.

NASA’s Terra Satellite Captures La Soufrière Volcanic Ash Cloud in 3D

The La Soufrière volcano has produced multiple explosive eruptions over the past week, blanketing the island of Saint Vincent in volcanic ash and propelling ash and gas high into the atmosphere over the Caribbean sea.

Tracking La Soufrière’s Plume

Explosive eruptions from the Caribbean volcano have flung ash and sulfate particles to the stratosphere.

Direct Observations Confirm that Humans are Throwing Earth's Energy Budget off Balance

Earth is on a budget – an energy budget. Our planet is constantly trying to balance the flow of energy in and out of Earth's system. But human activities are throwing that off balance, causing our planet to warm in response.

NASA Discoveries, R&D, Moon to Mars Exploration Plans Persevere in 2020

"NASA has impressed the nation with our resilience and persistence during the pandemic," said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

NASA Scientists Named AGU 2020 Union Honorees

Nine individuals with NASA affiliations have been named 2020 Union honorees or fellows by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and will receive honors bestowed by AGU for their excellence in scientific research, education, communication, and outreach.

Eclipse 2017 Shines Light on the Sun-Earth Connection

Aug. 21, 2017, marked a unique opportunity for scientists in the contiguous U.S. — for the first time in nearly a century, a total solar eclipse would sweep coast to coast, providing scientists under the path of totality with a rare chance to study the Sun and Earth in uncommon ways.

NCCS, CISTO, and Partners Present Advances at Virtual AGU Fall Meeting

Researchers from the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS), its parent Computational Information & Sciences and Technology Office (CISTO), NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and university partner organizations are participating in the Scientific Program at the 2020 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, being held online 1–17 Dec 2020.

Copper River Valley Dust Cloud

Dust storms are relatively common in places like the Sahara Desert, but they also happen at high latitudes in places such as Alaska.

NASA Earth Observatory’s Managing Editor, Mike Carlowicz

Mike Carlowicz is the managing editor of NASA Earth Observatory, which publishes a different image-based story about Earth every day. He is responsible for helping the team find and shape those stories, edit them, and put them together with strong visuals.

A Meeting of Smoke and Storms

Satellites tracked smoke from wildfires as it spanned the continental United States and followed winds around two hurricanes.

Fires Char the Pantanal

Drought-parched wetlands in South America have been burning for weeks.

Historic Fires Devastate the U.S. Pacific Coast

Satellite data is helping scientists size up one of the most intense outbreaks of fire and smoke that Oregon and California have seen in decades.

Watching Thunderstorms March Across Lake Victoria

The lake in eastern Africa is known for its intense nighttime thunderstorms, which are influenced by the lake's location, size, and nearby topography.

Communicating NASA Earth Science With Kevin Ward

Kevin Ward's Earth Observatory team focuses on communicating how NASA uses remote sensing satellites, airborne, and in situ data to look at our planet and learn how the Earth system works.

From Space and in the Air, NASA Tracks California's Wildfires

As California experiences one of the worst wildfire seasons on record, NASA is leveraging its resources to help.

NASA Finds High Aerosol Content Across Siberia

NASA/NOAA's Suomi NPP imaged the fires and smoke across Russia's Siberian province on Aug. 31, 2020 and found massive aerosols coming off the fires and heading high into the atmosphere.

NOAA/NASA's Suomi NPP Satellite Shows Two Views of California's Smoky Skies

NOAA/NASA’s Suomi NPP satellite captured two images that tell the story about the smoke coming off the fires in California.

From Astronomical Observatory to Earth Observatory: Translating Science With Kathryn Hansen

As a science writer for NASA's Earth Observatory, Kathryn Hansen has made a career out of learning new things directly from the experts and then relaying that in a relatable way to others. But initially she wanted to be astronomer, until a summer job in college changed her perspective.

Observing Our Earth Through Visualization With Joshua Stevens

Josh Stevens is a data visualizer, creating imagery from NASA's Earth science data. He pairs geographic analysis with the science of how people see, think, and reason about graphics to communicate about our planet.

A Dust Plume to Remember

While dust routinely blows across the Atlantic Ocean, scientists rarely see plumes as large and dense with particles as the one that darkened Caribbean skies in June 2020.
