CLARS is an observing facility for the measurement of greenhouse gases and pollutant emissions from sources in the South Coast Air Basin.


GeoGateway is a data product search and analysis gateway for scientific discovery, field use, and disaster response. GeoGateway focuses on NASA geodetic imaging products from InSAR and GPS integrated with earthquake faults datasets, seismicity, and ...

GOSAT Project

The Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) Project is a joint effort promoted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and the Ministry of the Environment (MOE).


GRACE, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, provided measurements of the Earth’s gravity field caused by melting ice sheets, changing large aquifers and waters.

GRACE Follow-On

GRACE Follow-On, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow-On, provides measurements of the Earth’s month-to-month mass variations.

GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory)

The Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory, or GRAIL, mission is a part of NASA's Discovery Program. It is scheduled to launch in 2011.

HyspIRI Mission Study

The Hyperspectral Infrared Imager or HyspIRI mission will study the worlds ecosystems and provide critical information on natural disasters.


Jason-3 continues the time series of ocean surface topography data after TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1 and Jason-2.

Jason-CS / Sentinel-6

Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, named in honor of the former Director of Earth Science at NASA, continues measuring ocean surface topography, a climate data record of sea level.


The MODIS/ASTER (MASTER) airborne simulator is a joint development involving the Airborne Sensor Facility at the Ames Research Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the EROS Data Center.

MRO - Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) launched in 2005 and is on a search for evidence that water persisted on the surface of Mars for a long period of time.


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.

OCO-2 - Orbiting Carbon Observatory

The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) is a mission designed to make precise, time-dependent global measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO-2) from an Earth orbiting satellite.

OCO-3 - Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3

The Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3, or OCO-3, is a space instrument flying on the International Space Station designed to investigate important questions about the distribution of carbon dioxide on Earth.

OMG (Oceans Melting Greenland)

OMG uses the GLISTIN-A radar to measure Greenland's receding glaciers, air-dropped ocean sensors to measure the nearby oceans, as well as ship-based sonar and airborne gravity to map the depth and shape of the sea floor around the glaciers.

PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment)

The Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment (PREFIRE), externally led by UW-Madison, will quantify the radiative processes effected by changing temperatures in the Arctic.


The Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman and Luminescence for Organics and Chemicals.

Solar Orbiter (ESA)
