NASA’s first satellite devoted to measuring atmospheric CO2 is ready to launch. The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 will join a constellation of five other satellites gathering information about Earth systems with unprecedented resolution and coverage.
This spring’s installment of the DEVELOP Virtual Poster Session series features interdisciplinary research projects that apply the lens of NASA Earth observations to community concerns around the globe. In short video format, DEVELOP teams in the United States, Mexico, Nepal and Bhutan communicate the capabilities of NASA Earth observations to address diverse environmental and public policy issues. These include monitoring conservation efforts and drought, forecasting water availability and vector-borne disease risk, as well as mapping invasive species distribution and the damage from natural disasters such as flooding, wildfires and hurricanes.
