Every day, Earth faces environmental change.
Fluctuating variables–including climate, sea
levels, El Niño, earthquakes, severe storms,
deforestation, and ozone depletion–represent
just a handful of many which shape and define
our home, planet Earth.
This program challenges you to examine one component of worldwide efforts to understand and predict such change: NASA's Earth Observ-ing System (EOS), an array of global observa-tion satellites. Just in time for Earth Day, examine how the EOS Data & Information System (EOSDIS) controls EOS instruments to process, archive, manage, and distribute instru-ment data using one of the most complex computer networks ever developed.
The Global Hydrology & Climate Center in Huntsville, Alabama and the ECOlogic team from Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C. join us live for this interactive program.
Find out how you, as educators and students, can tap into these EOSDIS data centers from school computers to hold the whole world in your hands.
