Goldberg will launch Cloud to Classroom, an innovative project that uses satellite imagery to help K-12 classrooms understand global environmental change through remote sensing.
A team of Boise State researchers is helping forecast tropical forest recovery from deforestation using Landsat satellite data.
In August 1975, Jacques Cousteau and his divers helped determine if Landsat could measure the depth of shallow ocean waters.
The use of satellite data by environmental managers tracking harmful algal bloom outbreaks along lakefronts and coasts can result in earlier detections that yield significant savings on healthcare, lost work hours and other economic costs.
The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations published an audio article about using geospatial data, including Landsat, to monitor would agriculture on soundcloud.
Coastal ecosystems are some of Earth’s most biologically diverse environments, especially coastal mangrove forests. Dr. Lagomasino uses Earth observing data to study these vital biomes.
Study of two metro areas finds where parks, trees and other green spaces are located.
NASA has funded four projects to create new, virtual portals to share a wealth of biodiversity information with land stewards around the world.
Dr. Eric Bullock uses Earth observation data to explore the consequences of land use and land cover change in high biodiversity areas.
Invasive species cost the U.S. economy approximately $120 billion a year and disrupt the dynamics of ecosystems. Researchers are increasingly using remote sensing to map where invasive species are and where they could spread in order to minimize their damage.
