New geospatial dataset helps assess early signs of drought risks worldwide

Soil erosion due to droughts

The near real-time assessment of drought risks is crucial to enhance food security in vulnerable regions around the world. SERVIR, a joint venture of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID), now provides a worldwide dataset for the Evaporative Stress Index (ESI), to analyse and visualize vegetation stress on a weekly basis and at a

NASA’s Images of change show human impact on Earth

Images courtesy of NASA.

NASA’s platform Images of Change has added new series of images that show how the mankind has changed the planet. The images were being captured over time and then compared; the changes can be seen clearly. They show e.g. shrinking glaciers, deforestation, urbanization, lake level fluctuations and other phenomenon.

Precipitation-Generated Landslides on NASA's Catalog

Lanslide. Image: NASA

Extreme events like heavy rainfall, storms or hurricane activate landslides. Unstable soil surface conditions can make heavy rains act as the triggering point for mud, rocks and/or debris to move down from mountains and hillsides. These mass movements cause unexpected human and economical losses. Heavy rainfall is the most common cause for landslides although earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, erosion, collapse of groundwater reservoirs, ice melt can also cause them.

The International Space Station (ISS) is celebrating 16 years of space living. The station was built with the contribution of space agencies from 15 countries between 1998 and 2011.  The first crew from the Russian Federation and the United States arrived in the station on 02 November 2000.   According to ESA, the station weights almost 400 tonnes and has more than 820 cubic metres of pressurised space - enough room for its crew of six persons and a vast array of scientific experiments.
