Where am I? Within this county is a large metropolitan area that experiences unique challenges with air pollution. Particulate matter contributes to poor visibility in the valley which is responsible for “Valley Brown Cloud.” In this map, the red points show the location of PM10 monitors that help measure the air quality in this southwestern US city. The blue, yellow, and brown layers show aerosol concentrations taken from Terra MODIS, with blue being the low concentration and brown being high concentration. Name this county, city, and state! #NASADEVELOP

When tasked to look under the sea, a DEVELOP team at NASA Langley Research Center decided to use images from space. The Chesapeake Bay Water Resources project used NASA Earth observations to look at water quality within Maryland’s largest bay.

Where am I? From 1999- to present, this park has experienced large variations in climate, leading to large wildfires and outbreaks of bark beetle. This project used NASA Earth observations to estimate the extent of broad categories of disturbances occurring in the park by mapping decreases in tree canopy moisture from year to year. Can you guess which National Park this is? #FindYourPark

Where am I? This Landsat 8 image shows the boundary of a National Monument and Preserve known for its well-preserved basalt flows. This National Monument located in a western US state is prone to wildfires, which can be detrimental to the local flora and fauna such as sage-grouse and mule deer. Name the state! Bonus points, if you can name the National Monument!

Where am I? This rapidly growing metropolitan area in the southern US is experiencing rising costs in storm water management. DEVELOP worked with The Nature Conservancy to find locations to plant trees that can help mitigate storm water flooding. The image on the left identifies locations with high priority to have trees and green spaces that can help with storm water in the Metropolitan North State Name Water Planning District (MNGWPD). The image on the right shows the water flow using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). Name the city and state! #NASADEVELOP

Where am I? This place is neither a state nor park, but is still found in the southwestern US covering Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah. This semi-arid region is prone to drought, and nearly a third of the 174,000 people living here depend on the groundwater. This project looks at land surface temperature using Terra MODIS data. This image has blue highlighting cooler temperatures and red highlighting the hotter temperatures. The red in the southwest corner is located in Painted Desert and the blue in the central area is where the Chuska Mountains are located. Name this US location! #NASADEVELOP

Will the Adirondack region in New York have to worry about a bug infestation? The DEVELOP team located at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center examined the progression of invasive insect hemlock woolly adelgid (adelges tsugae) and its negative impact towards the eastern hemlock (tsuga Canadensis). Learn how the team used NASA Earth observations to predict the risk of this infestation occurring in the Adirondacks:

From the 1990s to present day, NASA satellites have captured images of mangroves in Everglades National Park from space. The DEVELOP team at NASA Langley Research Center utilized this archive to see the progression of mangrove growth over the past few decades. Learn how the past can help land managers plan for the future: #NASADEVELOP
