NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies


The Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) key objective is the prediction of atmospheric and climate changes in the 21st century. On this website, the GISS provides data and images regarding the earth and atmosphere. Users can access earth observations; such as storms, aerosols, temperature, etc., climate forcings; global climate modeling; radiation and astrophysics data.
