Details about the poster front:
Landsat satellites have been acquiring meaningful and inspiring images since 1972, creating the longest continuous space-based record of Earth’s land in existence.

The captivating colors and textures of Earth’s varied landscapes inspired the front of this poster.

From top to bottom:
The folds of the Appalachian Mountains appear red in this false color image as the dark line of the Susquehanna River crosses the mountains and farms of southeastern Pennsylvania.

Kansas fields watered by center pivot irrigation appear as giant green circles.

Utah’s exquisite Canyonlands National Park features the winding Colorado and Green Rivers amid the landscape’s vibrant yellow and gold colors.

Deltas at the mouth of the Atchafalaya River and the Wax Lake outlet appear bright blue and green. These are just four incredible Landsat images from an archive of over 7 million.

This year’s Earth Science Week is being held October 14-20, 2018.
