An EPIC view of Earth’s processes
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA describes the advantages of using data from the Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC), which is located on the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite.
From one million miles away, EPIC has been collecting between 13 and 22 images of the Earth every day since 2015. The data enables scientists to monitor and analyze important aspects of our planet such as tiny particles in the atmosphere, smoke from wildfires, and the health of vegetation on land.
