NASA gets down to Earth this year with eight major new field research campaigns.
NASA’s view from space shows our planet is changing, but to really understand the nitty-gritty of these changes and what they mean for our future, scientists need a closer look. That’s why in 2016, NASA kicked off eight major new field research campaigns to study regions of critical change from land, sea and air. The campaigns have taken scientists literally around the world—from the edge of the Greenland ice sheet to the coral reefs of the South Pacific—on a wide range of science investigations. The data collected will provide scientists with a deeper understanding of our home planet and what impacts humans are having on it. Watch the video to learn more.
