Behind the Scenes—and Science—of the Earth Observatory

Since its launch in 1999, NASA’s Earth Observatory has published around 12,000 images, maps, and data visualizations. The number of written articles, feature stories, and natural hazard descriptions are nearly as numerous. This talk will shed some light on why we do this, how we do it, and the ways the Earth Observatory is both a consumer and communicator of science. Psychology, pixels, and prose converge in every piece, published daily for over two decades—and I am excited to take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of our team and our mission.
