NASA Earth data centers have just released Sensing Our Planet 2013, a collection of in-depth science stories that reveal the surprising ways that scientists use satellite data to study our planet.

This year’s collection includes stories about a mysterious drop in global sea levels in 2010 and 2011, strange atmospheric explosions and mercury rain over the Arctic, and “crazy bad” air pollution in Beijing.

Sensing Our Planet is written and produced at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) on behalf of the NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) data centers.
