Whether it's the trees and plants that give us the oxygen we breathe, the snow-capped mountains that provide the water we drink, or the breathtaking geophysical forces that shape the land beneath our feet, we're all connected to and connected by Earth. To learn about some of the scientists studying these natural processes, and how they use NASA Earth science data for their work, we invite you to check out our new ArcGIS StoryMap: Connected by Earth, Informed by Data. This interactive application will both introduce you to researchers working in interesting environments around the globe, and give you a chance to experience the power of NASA Earth data for yourself.
Be sure to check out the Learning Resources section of the StoryMap for links to Data Pathfinders, Data Toolkits, articles, webinars, and more!

Since 2003, NASA’s ICESat, IceBridge, and ICESat-2 missions have collected valuable information on the evolution of land and sea ice using laser altimetry technology. However, combining these disparate and large-volume data products, available from NASA's National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC), presents a challenge in terms of varied data formats, coordinate reference systems, spatial coverage, and discovery and access methods. Join us to learn how to harmonize IceBridge, ICESat-1, and ICESat-2 data products into similar formats and apply the necessary geophysical corrections for users to immediately access, compare, and visualize data using Python and Jupyter Notebook based tools.

Interested in airborne and field campaign data? A new Sub-Orbital Order Tool (SOOT) released by NASA's Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) enables sub-orbital data discovery and access within the radiation budget, clouds, aerosols, and tropospheric composition Earth science disciplines. This new Power User Interface (UI) is intended for experienced data users and science teams with extensive knowledge of sub-orbital data. The SOOT Power UI has been designed with advanced search functionalities, using a multifaceted approach that allows users to easily filter and browse airborne and field campaign data based on metadata attributes such as PI, platform, deployment year, start date, and dataID, a unique data product identifier based on measured parameter/species, instrument, or model and prefixed by the mission name. The SOOT Power UI also allows users to review their selected files in a streamlined user interface that enables the downloading of selected files as custom .zip files.

What do you get when you combine data from sensors aboard two groundbreaking Earth-observing missions into a single dataset? When it comes to the provisional release of the Harmonized Landsat Sentinel-2 (HLS) dataset, the result is global land surface data products with high temporal and spatial attributes that are uniquely processed to facilitate a wide range of terrestrial Earth science research. A new Earthdata feature article describes not only how to acquire amazing HLS 30-meter resolution imagery, but how HLS is a glimpse into the future of upcoming high-volume data missions that will be distributed by NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS).
