This webinar provides a general introduction to the Landsat series of satellites and Landsat time series analysis. Examples and case studies from various projects in Southern New England will be used illustrate how different types of ecosystem change, including abrupt shifts in cover types, long-term trends, and short-term changes in condition, can be characterized from time series of all available Landsat observations.

Valerie Pasquarella works at the intersection of remote sensing and ecology, using time series of satellite imagery to improve mapping and monitoring of landscape dynamics.
