What We Do

Data That Drive

The Applied Sciences Program helps people across the world use NASA data to solve big problems right here on Earth. We provide support and funding to help institutions and individuals make better decisions about our environment, food, water, health and safety.

All components of the Applied Sciences Program are now housed within Earth Action, a new element of NASA’s Earth Science Division. The appliedsciences.nasa.gov website and pages within contain both new content about Earth Action and historic references to the Applied Sciences Program. You can find out more about how Earth Action fits within NASA’s Earth Science Division, as well as information about other parts of the Division (including Flight, Earth Science Data Systems, Research and Analysis, and the Earth Science Technology Office) at the Earth Science website
