Landsat at #AGU18

AGU 100 logo At the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting, nearly 500 presentations will feature research conducted with the aid of Landsat data. The gamut of focus areas where you can find Landsat-related papers and posters attests to the wide scope and interdisciplinary nature of Landsat data. From oyster reef restoration planning to iceberg tracking, talks and posters on Landsat-aided research will be presented throughout the week.

This year we again had the opportunity to speak with a number of scientists, researchers, and students using Landsat in their studies. The resulting Q&A’s will be posted here throughout the week.
