We mapped substantial migration of the river channel between the City of Winslow and the Navajo Nation community of Leupp; in a human lifetime the river has moved more than a mile across its valley floor.
Technical information on the Aircraft Scanners data set at the USGS EROS Data Center containing digital imagery acquired from several multispectral scanners collected over conterminous United States, Alaska, and NASA aircraft.
Landscapes of interwoven wetlands and uplands offer a rich set of ecosystem goods and services. Changes in climate and land use can affect the value of those services. We study these areas to understand how they may be changing.
Integrated Software for Imagery and Spectrometers (ISIS) is a comprehensive, user-friendly, portable tool for processing, analyzing, and displaying remotely sensed image data. Homepage provides documentation, acquisition, user feedback, and FAQs.
Explains the long history of this series of satellites, from which we have obtained a wealth of information. Includes a summary of the scientific capabilities of the sensors each satellite carried, and describes what we can do with this information.
Study to identify grasslands that may be suitable for cellulosic feedstock production. Producing ethanol from non-cropland areas such as grassland will minimize the effects of biofuel developments on global food supplies.
USGS Archive for preservation and access for satellite remote sensing data and imagery (Landsat and AVHRR). Links to locating and ordering imagery, international collaborators, advisory committee, and Earthshots (satellite photos.).
Links to Spectroscopy Lab projects to identify and map materials through spectroscopic remote sensing (imaging spectroscopy, hyperspectral imaging, imaging spectrometry, ultraspectral imaging, etc) on the Earth and in space.
With NASA and JPL, USGS provides satellite images that anyone can use to see changes in the Earth's surface over time. This helps us study changes due to climate, human activities, or meteorological events.
