5 Ways Open Science is Transforming NASA Research and Protecting Our Planet

In celebration of Earth Day, it's important to recognize the role of open science in protecting our planet and advancing NASA's research efforts. Through initiatives like NASA's Transform to Open Science (TOPS), researchers can collaborate and share data, promoting transparency and scientific integrity.

NASA Celebrates Earth Day with Earth Science in Action

This Earth Day, you can join us in person and online to see how our observations help us monitor the planet’s vital signs and share them with scientists and citizens around the world.

NASA Releases Agency Climate Strategy

NASA has been working to better understand our home planet from the unique vantage point of space since the first TIROS satellites launched in the 1960s. Today, with more than two dozen Earth-observing satellites and instruments, it’s clearer than ever that our planet is an interconnected system.

NASA Uses 30-Year Satellite Record to Track and Project Rising Seas

Observations from space show that the rate of sea level rise is increasing. Knowing where and how much rise is happening can help coastal planners prepare for future hazards. Since satellites began observing sea surface height in 1993 , the average global sea level has increased by 3.6 inches (9.1 cm), according to NASA’s Sea Level Change Team.

Celebrating Black History Month – NCCS User Spotlight: Hamid Oloso

Joining NASA’s Black History Month celebration, this spotlight shines on NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) user Dr. Hamid Oloso. We follow Oloso from his childhood and university years in Nigeria to his current role as a computational scientist in the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

A Dry Lake Hamun Means More Dust Storms

When the seasonal lake and wetlands in the Sistan Basin dry out, dust often fills the sky.

NASA Spinoffs Bolster Climate Resilience, Improve Medical Care, More

The latest edition of NASA’s Spinoff publication features dozens of new commercialized technologies that use the agency’s technology, research, and/or expertise to benefit people around the globe. It also includes a section highlighting technologies of tomorrow.

Weather Whiplash

The configuration of the polar vortex may have played a role in unleashing bitter cold followed by record warmth in North America.

The Freezing Snowy Nightmare Before Christmas

A blast of Arctic air will plunge south and help trigger a powerful blizzard that will churn through the central and eastern U.S.

NASA’s SMCE Team Helps Scientists Develop Collaborative Cloud Computing Projects
