Land surface characteristics
Features and attributes of earth's land surface.
Integrated monitoring of ecological conditions in wetland-upland landscapes [ More info] 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.
Land-cover change research at the U.S. Geological Survey-assessing our nation's dynamic land surface [ More info] Estimates of change in major types of land use and land cover from 1973 to 2000 should help model potential future change as climate, population, public policy, and technology change.
Landsat Data Continuity Mission [ More info] Main site for Landsat missions, which provide information about land surface features of the earth. Includes imagery, links to general and technical information, ordering of data, and partners.
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 surface reflectance data [ More info] Surface reflectance data products approximate what a sensor held just above the Earthâs surface, without any artifacts from the atmosphere, illumination, and viewing geometry, would measure.
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 Project [ More info] A visible, long-term record of natural and human-induced changes on the global landscape since 1972.
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.
Mars Global Digital Dune Database; MC-1 [ More info] Distribution and morphological character of moderate to large size dune fields on Mars from 65 degrees North to the north pole.
Mass Wasting Following the 2002 Missionary Ridge Fire near Durango, Colorado, a Field Trip Guidebook [ More info] Guidebook with photos, maps, and diagrams explaining how forest fires have affected the likelihood of mass wasting, with discussions of steps taken to minimize future impacts.
