Good Friday morning! Did you know that next week... October 13 through the 19... is Earth Science Week?
This year's theme is Mapping Our World – an exploration of how geoscientists... geographers and other professionals use maps to represent and study weather and climate patterns... land formations, bodies of water... fault lines... volcanic activity... travel routes and more.
Satellites... airborne and on-the-ground missions play a key role in helping us map the world and understand changes taking place across the planet. Learn more about NASA's Earth observation missions below (from Earth Gauge)....
All of these missions... and the data and maps that come from them... help scientists better understand our planet. And believe it or not... there are even more satellites and instruments monitoring the Earth!
