Volcanoes, floods, fire… disasters can rewrite maps in an instant; Landsat is there to help.

Many of the rugged, beautiful places that beckon us to visit have been shaped by disasters like fires, floods, landslides, and eruptions. Landsat gives us both historic perspective and a wideview look at disaster aftermath, allowing us to navigate what comes next by knowing what came before.

TIME-lapse TRAVEL

Watch forests regrow on the moonscape of ash left by the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.

Did You Know?

We can see the recovery of forest fires from space – even 30 years later.

Landsats long data record allows us to see slow changes on our planet. Test your skills in putting these Landsat scenes in order to see change-over-time.

Change over time

Make a flipbook to watch how the volcanic ash and sulfur dioxide from the eruption of the Calbuco volcano in South America traveled around the world.
