Sensing Our Planet: NASA Earth Science Research Features

Sensing Our Planet: NASA Earth Science Research Features, formerly the DAAC Alliance Annual, is a multidisciplinary publication highlighting research using data from NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) satellites. The publication is researched, written, and produced annually at the NSIDC DAAC on behalf of the NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) data centers.

Sensing Our Planet features intriguing research using data from NASA's EOS satellites and related data from the EOSDIS data centers, including the NSIDC DAAC. The articles span the Earth science disciplines represented by the EOSDIS data centers, and are written with scientists, educators, and the interested public in mind.

The 2012 issue features data from twelve discipline-specific data centers. NSIDC DAAC data is highlighted in the article titled "Winter's water" that investigates how researchers pursue elusive forecasts of mountain snow using MODIS data. The issue also contains articles about the ways scientists are using NASA data to study topics such as ocean tuna, economic growth, and extreme weather events.

You can read stories online, download PDF copies of the 2002-2012 editions, or request printed copies from 1994-2012. Please visit Sensing Our Planet on the NASA Earth Data Web site.
