Landsat Abounds at #AGU16

Dec 12, 2016 • Over 375 presentations at this year’s AGU Fall meeting feature research conducted with the aid of Landsat data. The wide scope and interdisciplinary nature of Landsat data is reflected in the gamut of focus areas that Landsat-related papers and posters can be found: from cryosphere to biogeoscience to hydrology to global environmental change to natural hazards to informatics.

This year we were fortunate to have the opportunity to speak with over thirty scientists, researchers, and students who use Landsat in their studies, the resulting Q&A’s will be posted here throughout the week.
