FROM DEEP SPACE . . .
    TO THE OCEAN FLOOR  

EOS Scientists explore processes on the Sun, solar influences on Earth and its magnetosphere, the chemistry and dynamics of the atmosphere, changing climate, and large-scale ecosystems in terrestrial and marine environments—emphasizing complex impacts on and by human activities. EOS scientists and students use satellites, aircraft, ships, and submersibles to explore and investigate the most important and inaccessible places in the universe, in our solar system, and on our planet. Currently more than 300 research projects give depth to the Institute.

EOS Projects
• 

Designing and building major instruments on NASA satellites to study solar-terrestrial physics—including the MMS, STEREO, and GOES satellite missions—and phenomena at the edge of the solar system—the IBEX mission

• 

Leading a multi-institutional scientific team to analyze data from NASA's Earth Observing System

• 

Using space-based technology to study disease ecology and to address public health issues

• 

Developing the ability to monitor marine ecosystems using Earth-observing satellites

• 

Measuring the retreat of Greenland glaciers using global-positioning sensors

• 

Probing deeper into the fundamental workings of our universe using theoretical plasma physics, solar and heliospheric physics, magnetospheric physics, and plasma astrophysics

• 

Understanding regional air quality, meteorology, and climatic phenomena
