Human Health and Food Security

Our scientists work on the front lines of food security by using satellite images and other data to track seasonal changes in vegetation, monitor drought, map water use, and help warn where and when famine may be poised to strike. EROS assists in responding to natural and human-caused disasters by supplying satellite and other data critical for emergency responders, relief organizations, and disaster management teams worldwide. We also map the extent and severity of wildfires in support of firefighters battling blazes on the ground and post-fire efforts to stabilize and revitalize scorched landscapes.

United Nations Environment Programme Global Resource Information Database (UNEP-GRID)

A planet with a changing climate and growing population forces tough decisions about the use of limited resources.Making sustainable choices in the face of global change requires an accurate cataloging of those resources. Since 1991, EROS has been the North American node for the United Nations Environment Programme’s Global Resource Information Database (UNEP-GRID), which tracks environmental...
