You may think of NASA as an organization that sends astronauts into space and studies stars and galaxies.  In fact, NASA also has a long tradition of studying our very own planet Earth, including its weather, climate and hydrology.  In this webinar, you will learn about NASA's history with weather and climate observations, both from existing satellites and aircraft, as well as some of the five Earth science missions set to launch in 2014.
