Do you have a favorite beach? Have you ever gone snorkeling or boating? Landsat helps map and monitor those coastal waters and shores.
Landsat has helped us better understand coastal regions around the world for nearly 50 years. Now, Landsat 9 is ready to carry on that record, chronicling our home planet.
Travel to Cape Cod and watch 36 years of this ever changing coastline.
