Making up roughly 60% of the mass of our bodies and over 70% percent of the surface of the Earth, liquid and frozen water are naturally of interest to NASA as we search for water and life on other planets, and try to meet the increasing demands for freshwater here on Earth. NASA Earth Science data and products allow us to better manage water quality and quantity, and to predict processes of the global water cycle.
Challenges in this category will ask you to analyze and visualize NASA’s data on the hydrosphere (surface and groundwater, etc.) and the cryosphere (sea ice and ice sheets, etc.).
