The Earth and Us

NASA Earth Science uses space-borne and aircraft measurements to help us characterize, understand, and predict variability and trends in Earth’s system for both research and specific applications. As our only known habitat, this planet — including its phenomena like climate and weather, and natural resources like forests and oceans — influences all aspects of our lives. NASA Earth Science data and products allow us to understand our home planet and its response to natural or human-induced changes, which helps us make informed decisions to enhance our lives.

Challenges in this category will ask you to combine NASA Earth Science data with sociological and economic information to generate new understanding and perspectives on human-environment interactions.
