The Disasters program area within NASA’s Applied Sciences Program offers satellite data and analysis to help improve the resilience of communities and support response and recovery following earthquakes and other disasters.
Information and analysis provided by the program can help communities identify vulnerabilities and better plan for and mitigate their hazards. When disaster does strike, the Disasters Program team works with local emergency response agencies to connect them to timely, relevant imagery, data, and analysis that supports informed decision-making and impactful allocation of resources.
