Landsat imagery together with the processing power of Google Earth Engine were used to model the best habitat for rails along the Lower Colorado. Landsat is a joint mission of NASA and the USGS.
Many of the Greenland’s glaciers are retreating while also undergoing other physical changes.
Using satellite images to track global tundra ecosystems over decades, a new study found the region has become greener, as warmer air and soil temperatures lead to increased plant growth.
A new study reports a net increase of 5.38 petagrams of forest biomass between 1984 and 2016; carbon-wise, that is equivalent to a train of loaded coal cars long enough to wrap itself around Earth nearly 34 times.
In August 1975, Jacques Cousteau and his divers helped determine if Landsat could measure the depth of shallow ocean waters.
This bird’s-eye view of the relationship between temperature and bird biodiversity will help conservationists figure out where to prioritize their efforts in a warming world.
Grape growers like Gallo are using data from Earth-observing satellites to better track soil and vine moisture levels, understand vine water use and plan grapevine irrigation.
How the fields of epidemiology and remote sensing intersect to help the public.
Plant life is expanding in the area around Mount Everest, and across the Himalayan region, new research shows.
Fires in forested watersheds that support drinking water supplies can introduce contaminants that overwhelm current treatment capabilities. Earth observation data are helping.
