NASA Climate Data: From the Big Picture to Your Backyard


Wildfires. Poor air quality. Flooding. These are just a few of the consequences of widespread climate changes. NASA satellite data is helping monitor CO2 emissions, hazardous air quality, fires, floods, and other risks to people and communities around the world. But this data isn’t just for scientists. Local government officials, sustainability managers, and other planners are using NASA data to take care of their communities.
