This project is solving the Earth Day Challenge challenge.
Investigating NASA technology and climate conditions associated with multiple events from the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill to the present, we created a wiki with pages to parallel our findings. The investigated cases contrast early documentation of events beginning with simple photographs then transitioning to high-tech satellite imagery. The site is open for anyone to edit and contribute as more events take place and advancements are made. The usefulness of the site is proportional to the number of insightful contributions.
