Discoveries are researched by Earth Science Associates through various publications to find the latest data and integrate it into GOMsmart as quickly as possible. All of the sources are included for reference.
Data Updates
The Discoveries database is updated weekly.

The GOMsmart Discoveries are data mined by ESA (*).
