The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) wants to bridge the gap between data and the people who need it during hurricane season. NASA representatives say climate change boosts the chances of faster and stronger storms.

  • Karen St. Germain, director of the Earth Science Division at NASA, said the agency will deploy the Earth System Observatory within the decade to share data and analysis about the Earth, from the atmosphere to below the surface, to accelerate discoveries and reduce barriers for participation in science.
  • Germain said her division is currently flying 23 satellites studying the impact of weather on coastlines and crops, the movement of carbon and the effects of climate change on oceans, ice and land.
  • NASA provides data to its partner agencies, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the United States Geological Survey, which helps in understanding the ground situation before, during and after a hurricane, said St. Germain.
