NASA's Earth Now is an application that visualizes recent global climate data from Earth Science satellites, including surface air temperature, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, and water vapor as well as gravity and sea level variations. Data sets are visually described using "false color" maps. Color-coded legends are provided to indicate relative strength or weakness of an environmental condition. The resulting 3D model of the Earth may be rotated by a single finger stroke, and may also be zoomed in or out by pinching 2 fingers. It was developed by the Earth Science Communications and Visualization Technology Applications and Development Teams at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with support from NASA Headquarters.

Bug Fixes including:

Ratings and Reviews
I am doing a project on climate change and this definitely gave me a better picture in my brain although it does need an update because it totally blocked out Antarctica still try it, it’s really handy
This app is awesome! I find it very useful as a visual to show people the current CO2 atmospheric data when engaging with people about the dangers we face do to a lack of coverage by the media. NASA does incredible things on a shoestring budget! Earth now gives the public a direct link to our satellites most up to date data of earth’s natural systems. Thanks NASA keep up the hard work!
Easy to use & Research based
This delightful App comes from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the credible California based science institution, CalTech. In partnership with NASA, this app streams live data from a dozen orbiting satellites to give the curious minded visual representations of temperature, water moisture, carbon dioxide, and more.
Perfectly integrates with many NGSS standards from early elementary through secondary school.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
