Over 2 decades, Cluster has shed light on the auroral acceleration region, where parallel electric fields send charged particles on a collision course with the atmosphere.
Satellite observations have long been used to detect deforestation, and a new study shows that giving Indigenous groups greater access to these data can improve response times and reduce tree cover loss.
Aerosol observations from EPIC—a sensor aboard a satellite—align well with ground- and aircraft-based data, including measurements of smoke plumes produced by recent megafires.
Extreme precipitation can trigger deadly landslides. Satellite-based tools provide regional perspectives on landslide hazards, help assess risks in near-real time, and guide emergency responses.
A new book presents an example-driven collection of basic methods, applications, and visualizations to process satellite data sets for Earth science research.
An innovative program focused on collaboration and capacity building is looking to improve outcomes for smallholder farmers, reduce hunger, and alleviate food insecurity in sub-Saharan Africa.
Researchers combined satellite geodetic measurements of surface motion with a new geophysical data inversion method to probe the Chilean subduction zone in the wake of the 2010 Maule earthquake.
The World Magnetic Model, updated every 5 years through an international collaboration, supports numerous technologies that help us find our way.
A NASA mission is observing airglow in the upper atmosphere and uncovering what it tells us about Earth’s space weather system.
Different satellite-based metrics for global vegetation coverage tell complementary, but not identical, stories.
