Since its debut, Landsat has amassed over 10 million images. These images, also called scenes, show current snapshots of land and coasts, but pair with images of years past and they also reveal changes through time – glaciers slowly disappearing, or urban spaces sprawling across the landscape.
Landsat has shown that wildfires and climbing temperatures have caused a 6.7 percent decline in California tree cover since 1985.
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) uses satellite observations, including data from the NASA and USGS Landsat satellite series, in their efforts to work in partnership with local residents to understand and protect chimpanzee habitats.
Landsat allows herders to monitor vast expanses of desert in a way traditional field monitoring can’t support.
This webinar provides an introduction to HLS data, services, and tools and shows you how to find resources to work with the data; visualize, search for, and access the data through NASA Worldview and Earthdata Search; it also demonstrates how to use the Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS) tool to visualize HLS data to monitor fires and floods.
A new analysis found that between 34,000-38,000 could have been reduced with local increases in green vegetation in US metropolitan areas from 2000-2019.
Despite the rapid melting of ice in many parts of Antarctica during the second half of the 20th century, researchers have found that the floating ice shelves which skirt the eastern Antarctic Peninsula have undergone sustained advance over the past 20 years.
In recognition of Earth Day, NASA is highlighting two interns advancing the well-being of our planet through their work with the Landsat team.
Satellites have helped show that strong tidal activity may facilitate water-induced fracturing, or hydrofracturing, where land ice transitions to floating ice shelf and cause the meltwater lake to drain quickly, often in as little as several days.
BBC’s Follow the Food documentary series has reported on Earth observations supporting food production, market stability and on-farm decisions.
New Michigan State University research found that incorporating in-season water deficit information into remote sensing-based crop models significantly improves corn yield predictions.
Rooftop gardens and greenery can help ease some of the severe heat in cities, according to research from climate scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.
Wu wants anyone to be able to derive meaningful information from geospatial data like Landsat.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed an automated technique that uses Landsat to determine when swine waste lagoons were constructed and how they may have affected environmental quality.
A new mapping tool developed by UNBC researchers shows that western Canadian glaciers are shrinking at an increasing rate.
Launched September 27, Landsat 9 will provide a high-quality and reliable stream of land imaging data for the next 10-plus years.
Using decades of Landsat satellite imagery, scientists at Geoscience Australia have mapped annual shoreline locations for the entirety of Australia going back more than thirty years.
In Micronesia, the nation of Palau is building sustainable aquaculture farms in the ocean with the help of satellites.
Get ready to do some Landsat-inspired crafting and art making as we get closer to Landsat 9’s upcoming September launch.
California’s blue oak woodlands have decreased by more than 1,200 square kilometers.
‘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.
