|Science Writers' Guide to Terra|
This guide was produced for science writers and the media and provides research profiles, as well as extensive background and contact information for NASA?s Terra spacecraft. Terra?s launch marked a new era of comprehensive monitoring of the Earth's atmosphere, oceans and continents from a single space-based platform. Data from the five Terra instruments are creating continuous, long-term records of the state of the land, oceans and atmosphere. Together with data from other satellite systems launched by NASA and other countries, Terra will inaugurate a new self-consistent data record that will be gathered over the next 15 years.
