Dec 10, 2017 • At the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting, over 400 presentations will feature research conducted with the aid of Landsat data. The gamut of focus areas where you can find Landsat-related papers and posters attests to the wide scope and interdisciplinary nature of Landsat data—from cryosphere to biogeoscience to hydrology to global environmental change to natural hazards to informatics.

This year we had the opportunity to speak with a number of scientists, researchers, and students using Landsat in their studies, the resulting Q&A’s will be posted here throughout the week.

A number of scientists will also be sharing their research on the NASA Hyperwall located in the NASA Booth in the exhibitor’s hall (#1645). For details on these presentations, download the NASA Booth Schedule of Events PDF.
