NASA satellite data provides rapid analysis of Amazon deforestation

...pectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra and Aqua satellites to data collected from the high-resolution Landsat satellite. They found that MODIS images can rapidly and reliably detect changes in Amazon land cover. Unlike MODIS data, analyses of high spatial resolution data demand extensive storage and proces...

Logging doubles threat to the Amazon, rivaling clear-cutting, study suggests

...into each pixel of the image produced by a trio of satellites and determine the percentage of forested and deforested land within each pixel. (In contrast, the conventional interpretation of a satellite image would consider each pixel as entirely forested or deforested.) "This method gives us an incredible map...

These polar-orbiting satellites feature the Operational Linescan System (OLS) instrument, which was designed primarily to monitor global cloudiness under both solar and lunar illumination. To achieve nighttime detection, the OLS uses a sensor capable of registering extremely low l...

...obal scale," Dekker adds. "High-spatial resolution satellites can only do it on a few reefs due to cost and coverage constraints. We need a system that has appropriate coverage and revisit frequency, with a sufficient amount of spectral bands and sensitivity. There is no more suitable system than MERIS." The ...

K-Staters design and build a low-cost remote sensing tool for environmental studies

...esearch has required costly, piloted airplanes and satellites for earth's images and data, he said. "Small remote-control planes can be put to work in a variety of environmental settings," Ham said. "We want them to be comparatively cheap to build and operate. They'll provide a data-collection tool that offers...

Global malaria map key weapon in fight against malaria, scientists say
