Description

The purpose of NASA's Earth science program is to develop a scientific understanding of Earth's system and its response to natural or human-induced changes, and to improve prediction of climate, weather, and natural hazards (source: http://science.nasa.gov/earth-science/). A major component of NASA’s Earth Science Division is a coordinated series of satellite and airborne missions for long-term global observations of the land surface, biosphere, solid Earth, atmosphere, and oceans. This coordinated approach enables an improved understanding of the Earth as an integrated system.

NASA is completing the development and launch of a set of foundational missions, new Decadal Survey missions, and climate continuity missions. The International Space Station (ISS) now joins the current and planned fleet of Earth remote-sensing platforms, bringing unique capabilities and offering new opportunities for Earth remote-sensing research and applications.
