The processes comprising the Earth’s environment are interconnected.
Scientists are interested in learning how the vegetation (collection of plants) of an area can be used to study Earth's climate.
NASA visualizers take data – numbers, codes – and turn them into animations people can see and quickly understand.
An environmental planner tries to minimize the environmental impacts of housing, industrial, and transportation-related construction projects.
Atmospheric scientists study the weather and climate and examine how those conditions affect human activity and the earth in general. Most atmospheric scientists work indoors in weather stations, offices, or laboratories.
Data scientists work with data captured by scientific instruments or generated by a simulator, as well as data that is processed by software and stored in computer systems. They work with scientists to analyze databases and files using data management techniques and statistics.
Remote sensing scientists use sensors to analyze data and solve regional, national and global concerns. For instance, natural resource management, urban planning, and climate and weather prediction are applications of remote sensing.
