ACCESS NASA EARTH SCIENCE DATA
NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
The Disasters Data Pathfinder was created to serve as an Earth science data resource for emergency management professionals, decision-makers, and anyone interested in using NASA data to understand the vulnerability and exposure of communities to a natural disaster. This pathfinder directs users to NASA datasets that can aid in monitoring conditions that might contribute to natural disasters, measuring and mitigating risk, and assessing post-event impacts to surrounding areas. The data have been grouped by natural disaster. Access Disasters Data Pathfinder Image Credit: EU Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid
Join us for an introduction to NASA SEDAC's Global COVID-19 Viewer - a map-based tool for understanding the spread of the Coronavirus and underlying risk factors. We will learn about its development and then conduct a live demonstration of the viewer focusing on current hotspots, interesting trends, and an exploration of the risk factors.

A new dataset from the North American Carbon Program (NACP) provides gridded estimates of methane (CH4) emissions from dairies in California at an approximately 10 km x 10 km resolution for the year 2019. The mapped sources of dairy CH4 emissions are enteric fermentation and manure management reported in gigagrams per year (Gg/yr).

Fifteen years ago Hurricane Katrina caused severe damage to communities on the Gulf Coast of the United States. The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has been very active already, with 13 named storms as of August 28, 2020. NASA data and tools can be used to track the movement and development of severe storms, and aid in assessing post-storm impacts. Learn more about NASA tropical storm resources in the new Cyclones Data Pathfinder.
