A new special collection invites papers on a new era of remote sensing missions and instruments that will provide insights into human and climate driven changes on planet Earth.
Tropical Carbon and Water Observed from Above
Satellite observations show how tropical forest carbon fluxes respond to changes in water from climate variability.
SE Asia Peatlands Subsidence Tied to Drainage Density
Human-made channelization significantly accelerates peat decomposition and drives ground-surface deformation in tropical wetlands.
In Vegetation Growth Studies, What You Measure Matters
Different satellite-based metrics for global vegetation coverage tell complementary, but not identical, stories.
Five Things Spy Satellites Have Taught Us About Earth
Long before we had satellites beaming terabytes of data back to Earth, we had covert spacecraft the size of school buses snapping photos on rolls of film 50 kilometers long.
Insights from Space: Satellite Observations of Arctic Change
New satellite instruments and data, plus a more comprehensive observing network, are key to increasing our understanding of past and future change in the Arctic Boreal Zone.
Gas Bubble Forensics Team Surveils the New Zealand Ocean
An international research group recorded the acoustic signatures of gas bubbles rising from a hydrothermal vent field to gather clues about greenhouse gases escaping into the atmosphere.
Teams Invited to Test Coastal Hyperspectral Imaging Algorithms
Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Coastal and Inland Waters Webinar; 28 May 2019
Diagnosing Soil Moisture Impacts on Model Energy Fluxes
Do climate models truthfully mimic how drying soil affects land-surface budget partition?
One-Pixel Views of Earth Reveal Seasonal Changes
By averaging satellite images of the Earth down to a single pixel, researchers trace how the planet’s mean color varies over time, results that inform observations of distant exoplanets.
