Scientists investigate whether warming temperatures and changing rainfall patterns could be triggering more landslides in mountainous areas.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Chicago, Ill., are using NASA Earth observations to map, monitor, and forecast water and air quality, urban heat island effects, landslide risks, and more.
A new data set combining sample data and remote sensing could give scientists the power to make accurate predictions at a global scale.
Using nearly 50 years of satellite data and records stretching back millennia, scientists determine the relative frequency—and the erosional power—of monsoon- and earthquake-induced landslides in Nepal.
The maps focus on surface ice velocity, showing how Antarctica’s frozen surface changed over a 7-year period.
A new web-based data portal gives scientists access to more than 40 years of satellite imagery, providing seasonal to long-term insights into outflows from Greenland's ice sheet.
