NASA Earth Science Analysis Initiatives Give Shape To NASA Earth Exchange (NEX)

NASA Earth

NASA’s new leap towards integrating supercomputers with global satellite observations and sophisticated models of the Earth system in an online collaborative environment comes about as a perfect gift for Mother Earth.  On the occasion of Earth Week, NASA has brought to our midst, the NASA Earth Exchange (NEX).

With this initiative, NASA hopes to enable scientists towards collaborative research so that the effects of climate change and land use patterns on ecosystems could be explained better. According to a research note, NEX is expected to link NASA’s supercomputing resources with massive Earth system data sets, and provide a collection of tools for analysis and visualization.

The NEX would help in speeding up research on topics ranging from global rates of forest change to the effects of climate change on the reliability of our water resources, it is being pointed out. Using NEX, scientists can create snapshots of global vegetation patterns containing over half a trillion pixels in less than ten hours. The new initiative will bring together geographically dispersed multi-disciplinary groups of scientists focused on global change research too. It is being foreseen that scientists will also be able to build custom project environments containing the datasets and software components needed to solve complex Earth science problems.
