The Earth Science Program

NASA's Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project meets the requirements for processing, archiving and distributing data from many parts of NASA’s overall Earth Science Program. These include data from satellite missions including the Earth Observing System Project Science Office (EOSPSO), the Earth Systematic Missions that follow EOSPSO, and heritage missions such as Nimbus-7 and UARS. They also include aircraft missions, field campaigns, and Earth System Data Records from NASA's Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) Program. These missions perform measurements to advance understanding of the entire Earth system—the atmosphere, the cryosphere, the human dimensions, the land, the oceans, and the solar driving force.

For more information about Earth science missions and measurements please consult the Earth science at NASA page and the Earth Science Reference Handbook.
