NESDIS Impacts Briefings

GeoXO satellite imagery of Earth

Satellite data, applications, and other environmental information impact nearly every aspect of our lives–from the food we eat, to how we travel, to the health of our economy, to how we prepare for and recover from disasters. 

These NESDIS Impacts Briefings tell the stories behind NOAA satellites and information. They feature the scientists who work diligently on our satellite missions and environmental data, who carefully analyze data so it can be used across a wide spectrum of sectors. They spotlight the individuals who rely on this information to commute to work safely, grow their businesses, and run their farms. And they highlight the communities that use our data to build resilience, respond to emergencies, and protect their most vulnerable citizens. These stories underscore the importance of our work and showcase the value of NOAA science and service activities.
