NASA Earth System Science conducts and sponsors research, collects new observations from space, develops technologies and extends science and technology education to learners of all ages. We work closely with our global partners in government, industry, and the public to enhance economic security, and environmental stewardship, benefiting society in many tangible ways. We conduct and sponsor research to answer fundamental science questions about the changes we see in climate, weather, and natural hazards, and deliver sound science that helps decision-makers make informed decisions.
The Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) is the National Science Foundation's (NSF) section that focuses on extending intellectual frontiers in atmospheric and geospace sciences by making responsible investments in fundamental research, technology development, and education that enable discoveries and help attain a prosperous and sustainable future.
AGS Supports fundamental research regarding physical, chemical, and biological processes that impact the composition and physical phenomena and behavior of matter between the sun and the surface of the Earth. That includes a wide variety of important processes that impact humans and society, such as space weather events, tropospheric weather events, climate, and air quality. Because these processes can span a wide array of intellectual ground, AGS partners with other programs within Geosciences and across NSF Directorates, and with other federal agency partners, to help ensure that we are funding the best possible science.
Transformative science is often enabled and extended by state-of-the-art observational instrumentation and associated infrastructure, and the most capable computational hardware and software. Observational tools and infrastructure is supported by the individual programs at the relatively small scale, through the Geospace Facilities (GF) program, the Lower Atmosphere Observing Facilities (LAOF), and through our support of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), one of NSF's Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC).
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a
federally funded research and development center supported by the U.S. National
Science Foundation. Together with its partners at universities and research
centers, NCAR is dedicated to exploring and understanding the atmosphere and
its interactions with the Sun, the oceans, the biosphere, and human society.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the United States Department of Commerce is one of the world’s premier scientific and environmental agencies. NOAA's mission is to understand and predict changes in the Earth's environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and to conserve and manage our coastal and marine resources. Over the long-term, NOAA is working with partners and the public to build a weather-ready, climate-smart nation that is resilient to extreme events and long-term climate change.
