Understanding Air Quality & Health Risks

How can you tell when poor air quality is affecting your health? What underlying factors may come into play when a community experiences a public health crisis?

These questions are hard to answer without Earth-observing data. That’s where we come in.

Our team of health and air quality experts provide managers and policymakers with Earth observations that inform decisions about public health. We work closely with local, regional and national partners in the United States and around the world to understand and assess areas at risk of health and air quality issues. The tools, data and information our team offers help people live healthier — and more informed — lives.
