Opportunities for Early Career Scientists
Welcome to LCLUC
LCLUC is an interdisciplinary science program in the Earth Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate. LCLUC is part of the Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Focus Area with links to some programs in other Focus Areas.
A Closer Look at LDCM's First Scene
Turning on new satellite instruments is like opening new eyes. The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) released its first images of Earth, collected at 1:40 p.m. EDT on March 18. The first image shows the meeting of the Great Plains with the Front Ranges of the Rocky Mountains in Wyoming and Colorado. Click and drag the slider bar to compare these LDCM images, which zoom into the area around Fort Collins, Colorado. Popcorn clouds dot the plains while more complete cloud cover obscures the mountains. A dark wildfire burn scar from the Galena Fire is visible just to the left of the reservoir. The scar shows up bright, rusty red in the false color image. Credit: USGS/NASA Earth Observatory
- LCLUC Related Meeting: Frontiers in Earth Observation for Land System Science
Berlin, Germany, 17-18 March, 2014
Landsat-8 and the upcoming Sentinels, together with an increasing number of free-access EO data archives open up new possibilites for space-based analysis of land use and land cover chance. This first joint workshop of the EARSeL SIG LULC and NASA's LCLUC Science Team focuses on the new frontiers in remote sensing analyses that result from these new possibilities.
