NASA's Role In the Study of Climate Change

NASA is a world leader in climate studies and Earth science. While its role is not to set climate policy or prescribe particular responses or solutions to climate change, its purview does include providing the robust scientific data needed to understand climate change. NASA then makes this information available to the global community – the public, policy- and decision-makers and scientific and planning agencies around the world.


This site is produced for NASA's Science Mission Directorate by the NASA Space Place team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
