NASA Satellites to Track Biological Impacts of Climate Change

NASA announced 15 new research studies to examine how climate change will affect key species and ecosystems. NASA’s Earth Science Division is funding the new research projects to see whether environmental data collected by satellites can be used to improve ecological models that predict the behavior of a species or ecosystem.
Projects NASA and its partners are funding include efforts to understand how climate change will affect:

  • Coastal salt marshes 
  • Atlantic bluefin tuna in the Gulf of Mexico
  • Bowhead Whales
  • Bird populations and extreme climate events
  • Tree species stress from climate impacts.

A complete list of projects is available online at: NASA Climate Partners.
