Our Beautiful Earth

Below are some of the visualizations used in the Beautiful Earth program. NASA Scientific visualizations are high-quality visual representations of data obtained from satellites and developed in collaboration with NASA Scientists. These visualizations are an important part of understanding the inner workings of our planet including ocean currents, winds, and other Earth processes, as well as some of the human impacts such as carbon pollution.
