A year of Earth: Stunning video reveals 365 days of pictures from Nasa's EPIC satellite


- Time-lapse is a collaboration of more than 3,000 images of the Earth as it moved around the sun
- The images start on July 6, 2015 when the camera capture its first image of the lit side of the Earth
- Epic captured the movement of clouds and patterned weather systems, deserts, forests and the deep blue seas Also being used to monitor ozone and aerosols levels in the atmosphere, cloud height and vegetation properties

GEO-CRADLE Novi Sad: Connecting the dots across the Earth Observation value chain

Satellite Remote Sensing of Archaeological Vegetation Signatures in Coastal West Africa


This article discusses how archaeological sites in Sierra Leone, and by extension much of West Africa, can be identified through vegetation patterns (vegetation signatures) detectable in very high-resolution (VHR) multispectral satellite imagery. Settlement sites typically have a differing pattern of vegetation from the surrounding landscape, including concentrations of very large trees with sociocultural and historical significance: cotton (Ceiba pentandra) and baobab (Adansonia digitata). These features are conspicuous elements of the landscape both from the ground and in aerial imagery.

Earth Observation from Global Land to Urban Systems: Retrospect and Prospect


Continued urbanisation worldwide and associated environmental impacts have caught great attention in the remote sensing community and beyond. Earth observation technology, in conjunction with in situ data collection, has been used to observe, monitor, measure and model many of the components that comprise urban environmental systems and ecosystems cycles for decades.
