USGS Scientific Research Results
One of our primary functions is to provide quality scientific information to the public through our various products.
Landsat 9 is a partnership between the NASA and USGS and will continue the Landsat program’s critical role of repeat global observations for monitoring, understanding, and managing Earth’s natural resources. Landsat helps people prepare for and respond to natural disasters such as landslides and wildfires, manage vital natural resources and understand the impacts of climate change. First light images are curated by NASA as part of the 100-day testing period after launch, before control of the satellite is handed over to the USGS in January 2022.
Science for a Changing World
We monitor, assess, and conduct targeted science research so that policy makers and the public have the understanding they need to enhance preparedness, response, and resilience.
