Satellite Imagery Tracks Alaskan Volcano and other Remote Sensing News

The Alaska Volcano Observatory is keeping tabs on the Aleutian Island-based Cleveland Volcano, a 5,676-foot peak. It continues to expel lava out its crater, something it's been doing since mid-July.

Satellite imagery shows a lava dome growing inside the volcano's crater. Satellite data also shows continued heat generated from the volcano, according to the observatory, a joint federal-state organization.


Both BBC S.A and River Plare S.A [beef companies] have been caught twice by satellite imagery of illegally clearing protected forestryin Chaco [Paraguary].

Satellite imagery is one of the tools used to try to protect the land inhabited by the Ayoreo people hoping to save their ancestral home in the Chaco.

- Truth Out

ESA has been working with Ecocert, an organic certification organization, to use satellite images to spot the differences between the fingerprints of organic and non-organic winter wheat and corn to support the certification process.
Five different satellites were used during the trials to develop the new approach: SPOT-4, Kompsat-2, Landsat-5, Proba and WorldView-2.
