NASA’s Earth Explorers study all aspects of the Earth system—from climate to oceans to Earth’s surface and more. Articles about Earth Explorers and blog posts written by them can be incorporated into class lessons on particular science topics. To help facilitate that, we have compiled a list (below) of Earth Explorers by subject area.

In addition to articles and blog posts, several explorers will be participating in social media events during Earth Science Week. Those participating have a link to the event details after their name. Information about all Earth Science Week events in English and Spanish can be found on our Events page.

Please bookmark this page and return to it often during Earth Science Week, as it will be updated as new blog posts are added to our blog.
