Four large lakes on New Zealand's South Island stand out for their distinctive turquoise colour. Water rich with glacial flour can be seen flowing from the Godley River into the north end of Lake Tekapo. The Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8 acquired these image on 1 and 12 May 2019.
Images of Pine Island Glacier, Antarctica, were acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Terra satellite from 2000 to 2019. Images show a wide view of Pine Island Glacier (PIG) and the long-term retreat of its ice front.
The Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission takes us over Australia's northeast state of Queensland, where a large amount of sediment is visible gushing into the Coral Sea, close to the Great Barrier Reef lagoon.
Pléiades acquired this image, on 17 April 2019, after fire destroyed parts of the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral in France. The 850-year-old Gothic building's roof and steeple has collapsed following the blaze on 15 April 2019.
The Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission takes us over the busy maritime traffic passing through the English Channel.
Since antiquity, workers have harvested salt from the tidal marshes of Aigues-Mortes, France—a coastal Mediterranean town steeped in history. Today, salt remains an important industry here, and satellites can provide a bird's eye view of the vibrant production process.
Proba-V acquired this 100 m spatial resolution image, on 27 February 2017, of the internationally protected, volcanic archipelago of the Galápagos and its surrounding marine reserve.
Tropical cyclones carry three major threats: winds, storm surge, and rainfall-triggered floods. All three landed devastating blows on Mozambique when Tropical Cyclone Idai came ashore on 15 March, 2019, after taking a sharp turn in the Mozambique Channel a few days earlier. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Aqua satellite captured a false-colour image of the flooding on 21 March, 2019 - the first relatively clear NASA satellite view since Idai hit.
Pléiades monitors construction of the new administrative capital of Egypt, built on desert land between Cairo and Suez.
Researchers have recently been using NASA satellite data to monitor the spread and quality of pasturelands and to estimate how many cattle those lands can support.
