Warning! Danger Ahead!
Natural disasters, like wildfires, earthquakes, and landslides, wreak havoc on the lives of people all over the world every year. Additionally, many natural phenomena bring with them increased risks of deaths and illnesses from exposure to hazardous chemicals and pollutants, and the spread of communicable diseases. NASA’s Earth observations allow improved understanding and forecasting, and thus, better preparation for and response to these threats.
Challenges in this category will ask you to analyze NASA data to assist in monitoring natural disasters and phenomena associated with health risks, and to assess their impacts on life and property.
