Tracking raging wildfires. Monitoring flood impacts as waters rise. Charting hurricanes as they threaten people and property.

NASA’s Disasters Program uses an array of Earth-orbiting instrumentation to improve the prediction of, preparation for, response to and recovery from natural and technological disasters. Before, during and after disasters strike, our team provides decision-makers and federal, state and local governments the data they need in near real-time.
