Farmers rely on the accuracy of a crucial NASA and USGS mission, Landsat, to make decisions about crops.
Landsat 9 Project Scientist Jeff Masek joined astronaut Jessica Meir and other researchers to discuss the role of space and aviation technologies in studying our changing world as part of the Smithsonian Conservation Commons’ Earth Optimism initiative.
Many of the Greenland’s glaciers are retreating while also undergoing other physical changes.
Dr. Jeff Masek will talk about the Landsat data record and its role helping us understand our planet.
Scientists are combining data from water samples containing fish DNA with satellite data to find native fish and identify their habitats.
A number of new data products with information derived from Landsat inputs have become available recently.
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.
Using satellite images to track global tundra ecosystems over decades, a new study found the region has become greener, as warmer air and soil temperatures lead to increased plant growth.
A new data set uses Landsat data to extend the Crop Data Layer back in time.
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.
