International Cutting-Edge SWOT Satellite to Survey the World’s Water

So just how does the Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission expect to measure what’s flowing in the planet’s lakes, rivers, and oceans? A very busy project manager explains.

From Sea to Space, NASA in Silicon Valley Works for Our Changing Earth

At NASA’s Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley, our researchers and technologies help face the challenges of climate change that impact our lives: we are all #ConnectedByEarth.

NASA is responsible for collecting much of the data that people use to explain humanity’s environmental impact on Earth, from documenting climate change and its impacts on ice, sea level and weather patterns, to monitoring the health of forests and the movement of freshwater. But NASA doesn’t just report the data. It also acts on it. Go Green, Nasa, Planets, Sea Level, Space Travel, Rockets, Climate Change, Fresh Water, No Response

Everything in our planet — the land, the water, the air, us — is intertwined by the various chemical, physical, and biological processes that make up the huge system we call planet Earth. One of the key components of that system is the cryosphere, or all of Earth’s frozen water. Our Planet, Planet Earth, Frozen Water, Cosmos, Nasa, Physics, Planets, Ships, Space

Earth’s cryosphere is vital for everyone. NASA tracks its changes.

Fertilizers used in farming contain high amounts of nutrients, such as phosphorous, to help crops grow. But these same nutrients can cause unwanted plant growth and potentially harm ecosystems miles away if agricultural runoff flows into nearby rivers, lakes, or coastal waters.
