Earth Systems - SOS Playlist

Introduction  We need to understand how our planet works as a whole to improve life on Earth. Toward that effort, NASA uses satellites that have applications such as measuring precipitation in storms, air pollution, changes in underground water and the vast oceans. Coverage by this fleet of satellites enables discovery of connections between Earth systems and changes in space and time.
