Assessing Water Clarity to Identify Potential Areas of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation in Chesapeake Bay

This project analyzed the efficacy of NASA Earth observations in providing an additional tool for the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to use in their analysis of water quality using turbidity as the parameter.

Utilizing NASA Earth Observations to Assess Snow Cover in Saguaro National Park

Using NASA Earth observations and Google Earth Engine, NASA DEVELOP helps to provide National Park Service with a new tool to assess snow cover in Saguaro National Park.

Ozone and the Appalachian Trail

In large quantities, tropospheric ozone can negatively impact humans and vegetation, but ground-level stations only sample a portion of the atmosphere. This project assessed how NASA satellite data in conjunction with ground stations can enhance education efforts of the National Park Service.

Strategic Shade: Using NASA Earth Observations to Identify the Hottest Bus Stops in Phoenix

The NASA DEVELOP Phoenix Health & Air Quality project applies NASA Earth observations to help researchers and practitioners strategically deploy shade in Phoenix.

Steppe-ing Into Wildfire Recovery

Riparian corridors are inhabited by unique and biodiverse plant communities that control erosion, manage sediment loads, and filter pollutants.

It’s Not Easy Being the Green: Quantifying Invasive Species Cover in the Green River Watershed

Riparian corridors are inhabited by unique and biodiverse plant communities that control erosion, manage sediment loads, and filter pollutants.

An Ocean Between Us: Monitoring Marine and Vegetation Health on Cocos Island

The Isla del Coco Marine Reserve off the coast of Costa Rica is experiencing several environmental challenges including rising sea surface temperature (SST), coral reef bleaching, coastal erosion, and loss of cloud coverage above its cloud forest.

Tree Health Time Machine

Nearly three quarters of Lassen Volcanic National Park (LVNP) is designated as Wilderness under the Wilderness Act of 1964, meaning it is to be managed “to preserve its natural conditions … with the imprint of man’s work substantially unnoticeable.”

Say No to the Glow: Using NASA and NOAA’s Suomi NPP Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite to Model Artificial Sky Brightness

As more outdoor lighting is installed for safety and development, light pollution has become a growing problem that threatens the quality of life for humans and wildlife.

Waves of Change: Coexisting with Oceanic Oscillations in the Marshall Islands

The project team partnered with the Regional Climate Services Director (RCSD) for the Pacific Region under NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) to analyze near-real time (i.e., weekly) spatial and temporal patterns and trends in sea-surface height (SSH) around the US Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI).
