UCONN remote sensing experts used Harmonized Landsat Sentinel-2 imagery to quickly assess damage caused by the storm’s aftermath, providing spatially-relevant situational awareness that could aid rescue efforts.
A new mapping tool developed by UNBC researchers shows that western Canadian glaciers are shrinking at an increasing rate.
Using 30 years of Landsat data, researchers have found that the volume of glacial lakes worldwide has increased by about 50% since 1990.
Landsat data (since 1972) is helping scientists Sean Healey and Zhiqiang Yang of the Rocky Mountain Research Station (U.S. Forest Service) study the long-term impact of the May 18, 1980, eruption of Mount St. Helens.
Landsat continues to support the International Disaster Charter.
Sprawling urban fires that once plagued civilization were thought to be a thing the past—the Camp Fire let us know they are back.
For larger rivers, Landsat provides a rich dataset to define spatiotemporal patterns of channel shifting.
Fires play an important role in regulating forest density, vegetation water use, and runoff.
A new Burned Area algorithm has been developed by USGS to identify burned areas in images across the Landsat archive.
As global temperatures rise, melting permafrost is expected to cause more frequent and hazardous landslides.
Scientists at Berkeley Lab have produced a rapid mapping of the disturbance intensity across Puerto Rico’s forests with the help of Google Earth Engine and Landsat 8.
The Disaster Charter used Landsat 8 data to map flooding on the Orinoco and Caroni Rivers.
Landsat 8 data was used to map the fire extent, measuring some 16,000 hectares of destruction.
Burned Area Emergency Response teams—one of most important parts of wildfires that you’ve probably never heard of.
This month, 34 Landsat scenes were ingested by the USGS Hazard Data Distribution System to provide data for Charter activations.
A Landsat 8-based map showing regions south of Iran’s Lake Urmia that have been effected by recent flooding has been created for UN decision makers.
This month, 37 Landsat scenes were ingested by the USGS Hazard Data Distribution System to provide data for Charter activations.
The International Charter is a system that supplies free satellite imagery to emergency responders anywhere in the world. The Charter concept is this: a single phone number
You can think of the Charter as a one-stop-shop for impact maps—an essential resource, since in many cases satellite data are the only practical method to assess current ground conditions after a disaster.
A new collaborative platform has been developed to help Vietnam plan for and respond to flooding.
