Scientist and Landsat data user Africa Flores recently talked with Science Friday about her work.
Scientists are combining data from water samples containing fish DNA with satellite data to find native fish and identify their habitats.
A young start-up is using satellite data to give California farmers better information about water, which can translate into water savings or bigger yield for the same input.
A new web-based platform called OpenET will soon be putting satellite data in the hands of farmers, water managers and conservation groups to accelerate improvements and innovations in water management.
Combined satellite imagery have afforded researchers a new, accurate picture of the rapid development of damage in the shear zones on the ice shelves of Pine Island and Thwaites.
Using 30 years of Landsat data, researchers have found that the volume of glacial lakes worldwide has increased by about 50% since 1990.
Using Landsat, researchers have created the first map of the causes of change in global mangrove habitats between 2000 and 2016—a valuable tool to aid conservation efforts for these vital coastline defenders.
Goldberg will launch Cloud to Classroom, an innovative project that uses satellite imagery to help K-12 classrooms understand global environmental change through remote sensing.
In August 1975, Jacques Cousteau and his divers helped determine if Landsat could measure the depth of shallow ocean waters.
The use of satellite data by environmental managers tracking harmful algal bloom outbreaks along lakefronts and coasts can result in earlier detections that yield significant savings on healthcare, lost work hours and other economic costs.
