Join us for an exploration of our dynamic Earth! This year, Earth Science Week takes place Oct. 12-18, and celebrates Earth’s Connected Systems – from land to sea, ice to sky and everything living in between.
NASA missions study Earth’s system and help us to understand the interconnectivity among its components. NASA’s Earth Science Week 2014 website covers NASA Earth missions and how scientists study our home planet, educational resources about Earth’s system, videos, links to mission science, and more.
