Activity at Klyuchevskoy Volcano

This photograph highlights one of the most active volcanic regions on Earth: the Kamchatka Peninsula in far eastern Russia.  The three largest volcanoes visible at the center include Kliuchevskoy, Bezymianny, and Ushkovsky.  A thin ash and steam plume extends to the east-southeast from the summit of Kliuchevskoy, typical of activity reported at the volcano from early May of this year, when this image was taken from the International Space Station.  For more on this image and location, see http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Collections/EarthObservatory/articles/KlyuchevskoyVolcano.htm.

NASA ARES’ ESRS collaborated with ASU to Develop Brand New I4 Tool

Our Earth Science & Remote Sensing Unit has collaborated with Arizona State University to develop the ISS Instrument Integration Implementation (I4) data query tool.  This brand new tool provides a clean, online interface to search for both current and historical ISS Earth Observations data.  Take a look and see what you think! http://issearthserv.jsc.nasa.gov/i4.html

Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island as Seen from Space

The coastline of Nova Scotia’s peninsula is displayed in this photo taken by astronauts from space.  The Bay of Fundy experiences some of the largest tidal fluctuations (16 meters, or 50 feet) in the world.  This stirs up much of the red sediment visible in the headwaters in this photo.  To read more about this image, see  http://goo.gl/jDlwRn.
