In person online

NASA’s new Earth Information System (EIS) provides analysis-ready products for use by scientists and non-scientists alike. In this Exploring Space talk, Christa Peters-Lidard, Deputy Director of Science and Exploration Branch at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, will provide an overview of the three EIS pilot studies:

  • EIS-Fire, which uses data on active fires and fire emissions to support fire and air quality forecasts
  • EIS-Freshwater, which describes NASA’s water cycle science in a way that is easy to use and understand by a range of people
  • EIS-Sea Level Change, which integrates models and observations to study the impacts of the melting Greenland Ice Sheet on sea level change.

This program will be presented in person at the Rasmuson Theater at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, located on the National Mall in Washington, DC, and will be streamed live on YouTube with live captioning. Registration is required for in-person participation and encouraged for online viewing.

About the Space Exploration Lecture Series

eyes on earth

Access to space has not only allowed us to learn more about stars and other planets, it has also given us new tools and a new vantage point from which to learn more about our home on Earth and the complex, interacting systems that make it a habitable space. world.The 2022 Exploring Space Lecture Series will highlight the work being done in space today to better understand our shared history with our planet, with remote sensing, human observation and exoplanet science in search of new Earths . Check out all the programs in this year’s series.

The Exploring Space Lecture Series is made possible through the generous support of Aerojet Rocketdyne and the United Launch Alliance.
