Join StoryLab on Nov 9 to hear how NASA has employed teams of creative minds to showcase the groundbreaking discoveries taking place for more than 60 years. The Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS) and the Conceptual Image Lab (CI Lab) are two of the teams continually finding visually compelling ways to communicate these discoveries as well as the stories behind them. During this panel discussion, SVS data visualizers and CI Lab creators will discuss how they use computer graphics and other cutting-edge tools to tell NASA's story to the world.

Introduction to NASA Resources for Climate Change Applications

September 29 & October 6 - 11:00 to 13:00 ET and 15:00 to 17:00 ET

Since the pre-industrial period, human activities are estimated to have increased Earth’s global average temperature by about 1.1 degree Celsius (IPCC, 2021), a number that is currently increasing by 0.2 degrees Celsius per decade (GISTEMP Team, 2021). The increase in global average temperature is driven by increased carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere and other human activities (IPCC Sixth Assessment Report, 2021).

Scientists use observations from the ground, air, and space, along with theoretical models and scenarios of
