A team of climate scientists at NASA are studying whether “green roofs” can help ease deadly heat in vulnerable urban areas.

NASA Invites Media to 59th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium

Media are invited to meet leaders in space exploration at the 59th annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium, taking place on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park, from March 23 to 25. Attendees also have the option to watch the symposium online.

NASA-Funded Study Extends Period When Mars Could Have Supported Life

The surface of Mars is barren and inhospitable, but perhaps it wasn’t always that way. Billions of years ago, when life emerged on Earth, the climate of Mars could have been Earth-like as well, with a thicker atmosphere than today and oceans of liquid water. A study funded by NASA and international partners indicates this period could have lasted l

NASA-supported Prototype Turns Earth Data into 3D Video Dashboard

NASA field campaigns return vast troves of valuable data. Sometimes, however, processing so much raw information and related satellite imagery can slow the pace of scientific discovery. To combat that lag in output, researchers and programmers have developed a prototype 3D video dashboard for data from field campaigns...

One Year into the Biden Administration, NASA Looks to Future

Over the past year, NASA has made valuable contributions to Biden-Harris Administration’s goals – leading on the global stage, addressing the urgent issue of climate change, creating high paying jobs, and inspiring future generations.

2021 Tied for 6th Warmest Year in Continued Trend, NASA Analysis Shows

Earth’s global average surface temperature in 2021 tied with 2018 as the sixth warmest on record, according to independent analyses done by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Six Questions to Help You Understand the 6th Warmest Year on Record

We answers six questions to help you understand the GISS global surface temperature analysis, what it shows about 2021 and how NASA makes sense of the data.

NASA, NOAA to Announce 2021 Global Temperatures, Climate Conditions

Climate researchers from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will release their annual assessments of global temperatures and discuss the major climate trends of 2021 during a media teleconference at 11 a.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 13.

NASA to Highlight New Science Findings, Missions During AGU Meeting

NASA researchers and colleagues from around the world will present the latest findings on a range of Earth and space science topics at the annual American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting, being held virtually and in New Orleans from Monday, Dec.13, through Friday, Dec. 17.

Exploring the Climates of Earth’s Future Supercontinent with a NASA Supercomputer

Scientists from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, the University of Lisbon, and Bangor University leveraged the NASA Center for Climate Simulation’s Discover supercomputer to explore possible scenarios for Earth supercontinents and climate up to 250 million years into the future.

Reducing Emissions to Mitigate Climate Change Could Yield Dramatic Health Benefits by 2030

New research shows that improved air quality caused by reducing emissions from burning fossil fuels and other sources could improve human health and prevent economic losses, projections by scientists at NASA, Duke University and Columbia University show.

NASA Study Traces Decade of Ammonia Air Pollution in Africa

A new NASA-led study is the first to document changing atmospheric ammonia (NH3) concentrations in Africa over an extended period. Ammonia is an air pollutant which can lead to heart and lung related illness. When present in excess in an ecosystem, it can make soil more acidic and hinder plant growth.

NASA Participates in UN Climate Change Conference

NASA is participating in the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, which began Oct. 31, and runs through Friday, Nov. 12. The COP26 summit brings parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Vice President Harris to Visit NASA Goddard Today, Deliver Live Remarks

Vice President Kamala Harris will visit NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland today, Nov. 5, to get a firsthand look at the agency’s work to combat the climate crisis and protect vulnerable communities.

NASA Partnership Supports the Next Generation of Space and Science Professionals

NASA's participation in the Mentoring365 program will provide connectivity and access to the next generation of space and science professionals.

Global Climate Change Impact on Crops Expected Within 10 Years, NASA Study Finds

limate change may affect the production of maize (corn) and wheat as early as 2030 under a high greenhouse gas emissions scenario, according to a new NASA study published in the journal, Nature Food. Maize crop yields are projected to decline 24%, while wheat could potentially see growth of about 17%.

Drought Research Shows Value of Both Climate Mitigation, Adaptation

The American West will experience increased drought conditions in the future under both high and low greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, but the most severe drought conditions can still be avoided if future emissions are limited.

NASA at Your Table: Climate Change and Its Environmental Impacts on Crop Growth

The Earth is heating up. The effects of human-caused global climate change are becoming more and more apparent as we see more record-breaking heat waves, intense droughts, shifts in rainfall patterns and a rise in average temperatures. And these environmental changes touch every part of crop production.

Drought Makes its Home on the Range

Drought is a natural part of the climate cycle, but as Earth’s atmosphere continues to warm due to climate change, droughts are becoming more frequent, severe and pervasive. Ranchers throughout the U.S. are using data from NASA and others to care for their herds and the land during drought conditions.

After Historic Hurricanes Eta and Iota, NASA Helps Prep Central America for Disasters to Come

After historic Hurricanes Eta and Iota, NASA is helping Central America prepare for future disasters.
