NASA and Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS) of Seattle, Wash., are making a large collection of NASA climate and Earth science satellite data available to research and educational users through the AWS cloud.

The system enhances research and educational opportunities for the U.S. geoscience community by promoting community-driven research, innovation and collaboration.

“NASA continues to support and provide open public access to research data, and this collaboration is entirely consistent with that objective,” said NASA Chief Scientist Ellen Stofan at the agency’s headquarters in Washington. “Earth science research is important to every person on the planet, and we welcome contributions from all researchers in improving our understanding of Earth and its climate.”
