Explore NASA's remote sensing capabilities

spectrUM seeks to share NASA's remote sensing technologies and resources with Montana students in Missoula and in rural and tribal communities. How are remote sensing satellites used to observe Earth? How are they used to explore weather and natural disasters, including wildfires?

Remote sensing activities occur in spectrUM's museum and in our field trip programs.
