Earth at Night (2012)
PDF icon Earth at Night Poster_508.pdf

The Earth at Night poster was created with data from the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) “day-night band” onboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite. The data were acquired over nine days in April and thirteen days in October 2012. The back of the poster describes how the image was made, how the VIIRS Earth-at-night dataset is used, and includes an interesting facts section and quiz.

GPM Core Observatory (2014)
PDF icon GPM Mission Brochure PDF (5.5 MB), Binary Data GPM Mission Brochure iBook (94 MB)

The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission is an international partnership co-led by NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The mission centers on the deployment of the GPM Core Observatory and consists of a network, or constellation, of additional satellites that together will provide next-generation global observations of precipitation from space. In this brochure you will learn about the specifics of the GPM Core Observatory and its role in the GPM mission.

Lights at Night Puzzle
PDF icon LightsatNightPuzzle_NPP_final-4.pdf

The Lights at Night puzzle features a region of the North American continent at night centered on the contiguous United States as observed by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) onboard the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite. The image was created using data from the VIIRS "day-night band" from nine days in April and thirteen days in October 2012. The file includes a brochure with more information about how the image was made and how the VIIRS lights-at-night dataset is used, as well as several interesting facts and a lights-at-night map quiz.

Understanding Earth: Biodiversity and Ecological Forecasting
PDF icon UnderstandingEarth-BiodiversityUPDATED_508.pdf, Binary Data Understanding Earth- Biodiversity & Ecological Forecasting.ibooks

Biological diversity, or biodiversity, refers to the variety of all life on Earth—on all levels, from genes to species, ecosystems, and biomes. Over the last several decades, however, research has shown that global biodiversity has been on the decline. For decades, satellite and airborne remote sensing instruments have been observing environmental changes that impact biodiversity. This brochure describes how satellite observations—often combined with other measurements taken on the ground or from aircraft—provide information relevant to the distribution of ecosystems and their resident species and how scientists use this information to understand patterns of biodiversity, how biodiversity is changing, the drivers of the changes, and to predict the impacts of environmental changes on biodiversity in the future.
