MND_LOGO_2MY NASA DATA (MND)’s tools allow anyone to access real NASA Earth science data. Through the use of MND’s Live Access Server (LAS) data viewer, you can create a variety of charts, plots, and graphs to explore the Earth system and answer research questions. MY NASA DATA is also ideal for the classroom, offering a large number of lesson plans, tools, and resources. We’re here to bring NASA’s Earth science mission into the hands of teachers, students, researchers and citizen scientists.

There is a larger connection between the ocean and the atmosphere than many might realize. The Earth’s oceans are huge storage locations for moisture in the world, and as a result, a very large part of the water cycle and weather systems.

New EM Spectrum Diagram


NASA uses a number of satellites and instruments to measure the EM spectrum. CALIPSO uses a visible-wavelength laser, called LIDAR. GRACE satellites use high frequency microwave signals to each other. CERES satellites sense thermal energy by detecting infrared radiation being emitted from the Earth.

Just north of Langley Research Center in Chantilly, VA, the MY NASA DATA, S’COOL, GLOBE, and SAGE-III on the ISS will be at the Virginia Association of Science Teachers Annual Professional Development Institute (PDI). Here we will have a booth and concurrent sessoins with classroom ready materials for science teachers in grades K-12. This will give inquisitive teachers a better handle on the projects and how they can best use project resources in the classroom. For more information on the PDI visit the VAST Website.
