Sensing Our Planet

Sensing Our Planet was a publication of the Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project produced from 1994-2018. Sadly, we had to discontinue the publication of these interesting articles. The articles found in each issue describe research uses of Earth observing data from the NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs). The information in each article, which accurate for the time period, is dated to the year it was published.

Search the Sensing Our Planet archive by clicking in the search box below and entering in a keyword term, such as a DAAC (ASDC, NSIDC, SEDAC, etc), an instrument/mission (GRACE, MODIS, TRMM, etc) or science term (surface mass, snow cover, tomography, etc). The search results will narrow down the table entries applicable to the search keyword entered.
