Dec 14, 2015 • At this year’s AGU Fall meeting over 325 presentations feature research done using Landsat data. The Landsat-related papers and posters run the gamut of disciplines from cryosphere to biogeoscience to hydrology to global environmental change to natural hazards to informatics.

This year we spoke with over twenty scientists, researchers, and students using Landsat in their studies, the resulting Q & A’s will be posted here throughout the week.
