New Landsat data just a few clicks away

05 September 2013

Thousands of never-before-seen data products from the US Landsat satellites acquired over 30 years have been released for online access. In addition, the newest data over Europe from the latest satellite in the series, Landsat-8, are now accessible in near-real time through a new portal hosted by ESA.

About 150,000 new products from the Landsat-5 satellite are available for direct download, free of charge. The products from the satellite's Thematic Mapper instrument were acquired by the Kiruna ground station in northern Sweden between 1983 and 2011.

Earth's 'carbon dioxide breathing' seen from space

04 September 2013

Ten years of satellite observations of greenhouse gases reveal that carbon dioxide in our atmosphere continues to increase despite international efforts to reduce carbon emissions. Satellites also show that recent methane increases are likely due to manmade emissions.

Salty Turkey

This image from Japan's ALOS satellite was acquired over Anatolia's dry, central plateau on the Asian side of Turkey.

Also known as Asia Minor, the Anatolian peninsula is surrounded by the Black Sea to the north, Mediterranean Sea to the south and Aegean Sea to the west. In this image over the central high plains, we can see the whole of Lake Tersakan on the left side, with part of Lake Tuz in the upper right corner.
