Education and Outreach at the NASA GES DISC

Home page for information about educational resources and outreach activities of the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center

The NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) provides a broad variety of data to scientists around the world.    In addition to the data, the GES DISC has created several different tools that enable data users to categorize, view, order, visualize, and analyze the large volume of data it holds.    The primary mission of the GES DISC is to provide data to researchers, and via the expertise of the GES DISC staff, to facilitate Earth system science investigations.
 
The data and tools at the GES DISC also provide multiple ways in which teachers and students can gain insight into the interconnected spheres of Earth’s environment – the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, biosphere, and geosphere.    Many GES DISC projects and Web resources can be useful in both formal and informal education.  
 
Furthermore, the GES DISC and its partners have created different informational sources conveying the vital importance of data from NASA Earth observing satellites for the understanding of the Earth system and to investigate and prognosticate the influence of humankind on Earth’s environment, weather, and climate.
