COVID-19 led to changes in human activities around the globe. Some bodies of water have run clearer, emissions of pollutants have temporarily declined, and transportation and shipment of goods have decreased. We can see some of these changes from space. NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) are making satellite data available on the new COVID-19 Earth Observation Dashboard. Learn what data are available and how to navigate the dashboard in this tutorial video.
