At the USGS EROS Center, we study land change and produce land change data products used by researchers, resource managers, and policy makers across the nation and around the world. We also operate the Landsat satellite program with NASA, and maintain the largest civilian collection of images of the Earth’s land surface in existence, including tens of millions of satellite images.
This episode of our remote sensing podcast is a conversation with Kristi Kline, who is retiring from EROS, about her memories and changes throughout her time here.
