Kustas’ research informed the new OpenET app that uses Landsat thermal data as a key data input.
‘Green tides’ of algae have wreaked havoc across the coastlines of Brittany, France, for half a century due to high levels of agricultural runoff. With efforts to reduce these underway, a new technique using over three decades of satellite images highlights the extent of the continuing problem.
Putting NASA and USGS satellite information at farmers’ fingertips leads to less water use and better crop yields in South Asia.
Scientists use Landsat to track changing patterns of deforestation that tells them how Amazonian agricultural practices have changed, from small family holdings to massive ranching operations.
A young start-up is using satellite data to give California farmers better information about water, which can translate into water savings or bigger yield for the same input.
A new data set uses Landsat data to extend the Crop Data Layer back in time.
