Terrestrial Information Systems supports the requirements of GSFC research projects that advance our understanding of the atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere on a global scale through the production of stable, well calibrated and scientifically validated products from a series of earth observing satellites. In producing a time series of high quality global products, members are engaged in:


Recognizing the need for a rapid response in many of NASA application areas, the group also partners with other federal agencies, such as the Department of Interior and Department of Defense, to develop and operate computing systems which provide custom products in near real-time to national and international users for applied research activities (such as fire and flood monitoring, famine prediction, invasive species, and ecological forecasting) and applications, e.g. military tactical support.
