Come along on a "roadtrip" through the decades to see how the technology on Landsat has evolved with the times to provide an unbroken data record.
This video takes you to the summer of 1975 when Jacques Cousteau and his divers helped NASA determine if Landsat could measure the depth of shallow ocean waters.
For five decades, we have relied on Landsat's high-quality, science-quality observations to understand and protect our home planet.
Landsat helps water resource managers know where to look for dangerous algal blooms in Utah lakes.
Australia's natural resource regulator uses drones and satellite imagery to monitor water use and compliance with their water laws across New South Wales to ensure our water resources are protected for generations to come.
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!
Scientist and Landsat data user Africa Flores recently talked with Science Friday about her work.
Landsat 9 Project Scientist Jeff Masek joined astronaut Jessica Meir and other researchers to discuss the role of space and aviation technologies in studying our changing world as part of the Smithsonian Conservation Commons’ Earth Optimism initiative.
Dr. Jeff Masek will talk about the Landsat data record and its role helping us understand our planet.
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.
