Science Writers' Guide to Terra DLESE Reviewed Collection
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.
