"Earth@Home is rich with free interactive content about Earth and its life, with a focus on geology, paleontology, climate, and the connections of Earth’s different systems. The major components of this new platform include:
The "Here on Earth" regional guides to Earth science will encourage website visitors to learn about their local geology and natural environment right outside their backdoor.
Digital Encyclopedia of Earth Science: A free, online, open-access textbook, designed to provide accessible introductions to core topics across the Earth sciences.
Virtual Fieldwork: Fieldwork, the study of a site through firsthand observation, is fundamental to how we have come to understand our environment and Earth processes.
An interactive tool for exploring the science of Earth's deep history. From molten mass to snowball earth, EarthViewer lets you see continents grow and shift as you scroll through billions of years. Additional layers let you and your students explore changes in atmospheric composition, temperature, biodiversity, day length, and solar luminosity over deep time.
The Planetary Data System (PDS) is an archive of data products from NASA planetary missions, which is sponsored by NASA's Science Mission Directorate. We actively manage the archive to maximize its usefulness, and it has become a basic resource for scientists around the world.
All PDS-produced products are peer-reviewed, well-documented, and easily accessible via a system of online catalogs that are organized by planetary disciplines.
This interactive mapping interface displays data for each of the 344 climate divisions in the U.S. Climate Divisional Database. View maps of monthly or yearly values, ranks, or anomalies for temperature, precipitation, heating and cooling degree days, and drought indices.
8-meter resolution digital elevation model covering 98% of the continent of Antarctica.
The release of this DEM provides access to detailed maps of Antarctica’s terrain.
REMA is available for download as mosaic tiles (8 meter posting for most areas, 2 meter posting for rock outcrops and other areas of interest) and 2 meter posting strips. GIS data in the form of shapefiles provides an index file for identifying strips segments.
High resolution, time-stamped Digital Surface Model (DSM) of Antarctica at 8-meter spatial resolution.
REMA is constructed from hundreds of thousands of individual stereoscopic Digital Elevation Models (DEM) extracted from pairs of submeter (0.32 to 0.5 m) resolution DigitalGlobe satellite imagery, including data from WorldView-1, WorldView-2, and WorldView-3, and a small number from GeoEye-1, acquired between 2009 and 2017, with most collected in 2015 and 2016, over the austral summer seasons (mostly December to March).
Web map viewer and direct tile downloads available. Web-based API access for data to ArcOnline.
