A new method, fusing data from many sources, has been developed for quantifying forests' role as both carbon sink and carbon source.
This new four-part video series shares the history of Landsat, how Landsat 9 works, how Landsat data gets from the satellite to the ground, and how Landsat data can be used with other data to support a wide range of research and applications. Enjoy!
We have Virginia Norwood to thank for the design and engineering that made the Landsat program a success and set the path for modern Earth observation.
Landsat 9’s two science instruments are now attached to the spacecraft.
New time-lapse videos of Earth’s glaciers and ice sheets as seen from space are providing scientists with new insights into how the planet’s frozen regions are changing.
OLI-2 is now built, tested, and in place to be assembled onto the spacecraft.
This month, TIRS-2 successfully passed the stringent 12-week testing process at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and was shipped to Northrop Grumman’s facility in Arizona.
