NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center has the largest collection of Earth scientists on the planet. Their job is to be the nation's trusted source of comprehensive environmental information about the current state and the future of Earth. They build, design, launch and operate scientific missions, including satellites and airborne campaigns, as well as ground campaigns, to understand how the Earth works and how to predict how the Earth will change in the future.

The Earth Sciences Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center plans, organizes, evaluates, and implements a broad program of research on our planet's natural systems and processes. Major focus areas include climate change, severe weather, the atmosphere, the oceans, sea ice and glaciers, and the land surface.

To study the planet from the unique perspective of space, the Earth Science Division develops and operates remote-sensing satellites and instruments. We analyze observational data from these spacecraft and make it available to the world's scientists. Our Education and Public Outreach efforts raise public awareness of the Division's research and its benefits to society.
