  • ISA-MEIDA was a joint project of the Israel Space Agency with NASA

  • ISA-MEIDA was a Node in the global Earth Observing Science Data and Information System (EOSDIS) set up by NASA

  • The Node was established in april 1999 and declared operative by NASA on april 2000

  • With lack of funding operations had to be reduced over the years.

  • InIsrael 90% of the data collected for Earth System research is lost. The Israeli NASA Node is the only organization in Israel committed to saving and preserving Earth System Data.
