For over 125 years, the U.S. Geological Survey streamgage network has provided important hydrologic information about rivers and streams throughout the Nation. Traditional streamgage methods provide reliable stage and streamflow data but typically only monitor stage at a single location in a river and require frequent calibration streamflow measurements. Direct measurements are not always feasible, therefore improved sensors and methods are being deployed at gages to better document streamflow conditions between measurements. The technology and techniques of reach-scale monitoring allow the U.S. Geological Survey to collect more data across the full range of streamflow without requiring that a hydrographer be present....
The USGS Land Remote Sensing Program has established a long-term study to better understand the users, uses, and value of Landsat satellite imagery. The current Landsat satellites provide high-quality, multi-spectral, moderate-resolution imagery of all areas of the world. This imagery is applied in a variety of applications, such as global climate change, environmental management, and planning and development. Landsat imagery is unique among current satellite imagery due to an archive of free global imagery collected continuously since 1972. More than 20 million Landsat scenes have been downloaded, the vast majority since a no-cost data policy was put into place in 2008. The Fort Collins Science Center’s Social...
