Read stories about how Applied Sciences program areas and projects have an impact on people every day — both in the United States and around the world.

Whether it’s to better understand current management practices and maintain more diverse wetland habitats, protect public health after a two-week fire created an unhealthy smoke cloud or help farmers plant cover crops to stem the flow of harmful runoff into the Chesapeake Bay — NASA Earth-observing data can be used for various issues communities face around the world.

These are just a few examples of the Program’s impact. Immerse yourself in these and other stories to experience our work firsthand.
