Terra: The EOS Flagship

Herring David, Terra Project Science

This website provides access to images and data from NASA's Earth Observing System (EOS) Terra instruments (ASTER, CERES, MISR, MODIS, and MOPITT). A collection of fact sheets on Terra-related topics includes: what are aerosols?, changing global cloudiness, surface absorption and reflection, changing global land surface, and the roles of the ocean in climate change. A publications index offers links to a Terra brochure, press kit, science writers guide, and instructions on how to build a paper model of Terra. There is also a link to the Earth Observatory, which details new science results from Terra and other NASA Earth'science missions.
