Researchers have created high resolution maps of tropical forest quality using remotely sensed data from NASA satellites.
Scientists are using satellite data to measure and map the amount of snow on Arctic sea ice.
In 2018, NASA launched the ICESat-2 satellite to monitor levels of ice. Researchers have found that this satellite can also measure coral reef systems.
ICESat-2's purpose is to collect detailed measurements of the Earth's surface using its Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS).
