AGU 100 logoDec 10, 2018 • At the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting, nearly 500 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 oyster reef restoration planning to iceberg tracking, talks and posters on Landsat-aided research will be presented throughout the week.

This year we again 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.
