A method of remote sensing that obtains optical representations in two or more ranges of frequencies or wave lengths.
Landsat Data Continuity Mission [ More info] A partnership between NASA and USGS to assure continuous satellite imaging of the earth's surface that was begun 40 years ago.
Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) [ More info] Fact sheet introducing the LIMA website, which presents a cloudless, seamless, geometrically accurate, high-resolution satellite mosaic of Antarctica.
Landsat--Earth observation satellites [ More info] 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.
Landsat-A Global Land-Imaging Mission [ More info] Characteristics and history of this satellite-based earth imaging system, including plans and prospects for future instruments.
Landsat: A Global Land Imaging Program [ More info] Overview of the history of this satellite imaging system, with details about the way in which it collects information about the earth's surface.
Landsat: A Global Land-Imaging Project [ More info] A visible, long-term record of natural and human-induced changes on the global landscape since 1972.
LandsatLook images [ More info] Describes the source, kinds, format, possible uses, and limitations of LandsatLook images generated from Landsat satellite data.
Mapping benefits from updated ifsar data in Alaska: improved source data enables better maps [ More info] Higher resolution digital topographic maps for Alaska are derived from interferometric synthetic aperture radar combined with other remote sensing data.
Mapping grasslands suitable for cellulosic biofuels in the Greater Platte River Basin, United States [ More info] 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.
Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Overview [ More info] Includes 500 meter surface reflectance and vegetation indices, which can be used to study change in energy balance and vegetation over time.
