2016 NASA Earth Expeditions : ABoVE >>
Your planet is changing. We’re on it, from land, sea and air.
NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives and safeguard our future. Our researchers collect and study data from space, land, sea and air to tackle challenges facing the world today, from improved environmental prediction to natural hazard and climate change preparedness.
NASA’s view from space shows our planet is changing, but to really understand the nitty-gritty of these changes and what they mean for our future, scientists need a closer look. This year NASA takes you on a six-month world tour as we embark on major new field research campaigns to study regions of critical change around the world.
In addition to providing the world with important new insights about our planet, NASA’s field campaigns help prepare tomorrow’s Earth scientists. These experiments give students, post-doctoral researchers and early career professionals the opportunity to engage with NASA Earth science, from building, testing, and flying instruments to collecting and analyzing data. Many of the young scientists participating in today’s field campaigns will become NASA’s future principal investigators.
The public is invited to follow this journey of exploration online through NASA social media channels and the Earth Expeditions web page dedicated to ABoVE, that will feature regular video, photos and blog posts from all the missions and other ongoing field activities.
