View Resource Natural Hazards

NASA's Earth Observatory Web site's newest addition, Natural Hazards, is a continually updated resource of remarkable photography taken from the satellite MODIS (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) of visible natural disasters around the globe of things such as the thick cloud of pollution currently over India and the dozen ravaging bush fires in Australia. Each page contains a...

View Resource JPL Sensor Webs Project

The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory has devised a remarkable new type of sensor that could revolutionize the way scientists gather data. A Sensor Web is a network of many individual sensors that are about the size of a ping-pong ball. By themselves, they collect a single measurement-like temperature or humidity. But an entire Sensor Web can be spread out over a very large area and collect vast...

View Resource Lake Water Monitoring and Analysis with Satellite Remote Sensing

From the Environmental Remote Sensing Center at the University of Wisconsin Madison comes the Lake Water Monitoring and Analysis with Satellite Remote Sensing Web site. Researchers and their cooperators have developed a method of assessing the water quality of Wisconsin's lakes from space using satellite imagery. Visitors to the site can read about how this is actually done, view an interactive...

View Resource Archiving Aerial Photography and Remote Sensing Data: A Guide to Good Practice

A 1998 publication in the AHDS Guide to Good Practice series provides guidance for the "documentation and digital preservation of aerial photographs, satellite imagery, and archaeological interpretations derived from these sources." This guide was written by a team of European archaeologists, geographers, and digital archivists for publication by the Archaeology Data Service (ADS). The ADS is...

View Resource Louisiana State University: Earth Scan Laboratory

Louisiana State University's earth station for NOAA polar orbiting and geostationary satellites collects, analyzes, interprets, and distributes earth environmental data. Researchers can view abstracts of the many publications authored by people associated with the laboratory. The web site offers a large quantity of detailed imagery from GOES, MODIS, and other remote sensing equipment as well as a...

View Resource 40 + Years of Earth Science: The Landsat Program

A variety of man-made objects have been sent into outer space for decades, and as a very large and distinguished group, they have sent back important data. NASA has been at the forefront of these efforts here in the United States, and the Landsat Program has certainly been quite successful since its inception in the early 1970s. This website provides a wealth of information on the Landsat Program,...
