Earth Surface and Interior: Projects

ARIA is a collaborative project between JPL and Caltech to develop data systems and data products based on radar, GPS, and seismic observations for hazard science and response.
ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) is an imaging instrument flying on Terra, a satellite launched in December 1999 as part of NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS).
E-DECIDER is decision support system producing remote sensing and geophysical modeling products relevant to emergency preparedness and response communities and serves as a gateway delivering actionable information to these communities.
ECOSTRESS (ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station)
The ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer on Space Station (ECOSTRESS) mission will study how the worlds ecosystems use water..
EMIT (Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation)
The Earth Surface Mineral Dust Source Investigation (EMIT) is an Earth Ventures-Instrument (EVI-4) Mission to map the surface mineralogy of arid dust source regions via imaging spectroscopy in the visible and short-wave infrared (VSWIR).
GRACE, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, provide measurements of the Earth’s gravity field, including the variability of ocean mass.
NASA Carbon Cycle Science (CARBON)
Multi-scale Synthesis and Terrestrial Model Intercomparison Project (MsTMIP) Phase II
NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar, or NISAR, is a satellite radar mission run jointly by NASA and the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) that will survey Earth’s changing ecosystems, dynamic surface, and ice masses.
The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) obtained elevation data on a near-global scale to generate the most complete high-resolution digital topographic database of Earth.
UAVSAR, is a reconfigurable, polarimetric L-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR), is specifically designed to acquire airborne repeat track SAR data for differential interferometric measurements.
