Your Home. Our Mission.

At the Science Directorate at NASA's Langley Research Center, we translate atmospheric discovery into better solutions to protect the Earth and its people. We monitor Earth's vital signs from land, air and space with a fleet of satellites and ambitious airborne and ground-based observation campaigns. We develop new ways to observe and study Earth's interconnected natural systems with long-term data records.

In addition to our extensive research, we manage one of the world's largest and most comprehensive collections of data for understanding Earth's atmosphere. Our work has shaped how scientists study the Earth and our atmosphere, and makes a difference in people's lives around the world every day — from farms to our national parks, from today's response to natural disasters to tomorrow’s air quality, from the Arctic to the Amazon.
