Dec 14, 2017 • When parking lots go up, when rooftops multiply, land cover and land uses change, Professor Andrew Elmore with the University of Maryland’s Center for Environmental Science understands that very well, and explains how he uses Landsat to study and quantify that change in USGS EROS’ latest Landsat in Action video conversation. Elmore delves into the changing phenology of forests and how that impacts the amount of carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere as well.

A quote to note from Andrew Elmore:
“The most unique thing about Landsat is its length of record… The ability to go back 30 years or more is something you just can’t do with any other sensor.”
