Over the past 12 months NASA has added five missions to its orbiting Earth-observing fleet – the biggest one-year increase in more than a decade. NASA scientists will discuss early observations from the new missions and their current status during a media teleconference at 2 p.m. EST Thursday, Feb. 26.

New views of global carbon dioxide, rain and snowfall, ocean winds, and aerosol particles in the atmosphere will be presented during the briefing.

The teleconference panelists are:
Peg Luce, deputy director of the Earth Science Division in NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, Headquarters, Washington
Gail Skofronick-Jackson, GPM project scientist, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland
