In a Landsat 5 satellite image captured June 11, 2011, flooding is still evident both east and west of the Mississippi River near Vicksburg, Miss. Standing water is most apparent, however, in the floodplain between the Yazoo and Mississippi rivers north of Vicksburg. On May 19, 2011, the Mississippi River reached a historic crest at Vicksburg. According to the Advanced Hydrological Prediction Service (AHPS) of the U.S. National Weather Service, the river reached 57.10 feet (17.40 meters) that...

Satellites provide a lot of useful information and the Landsat 5 satellite captured an image of the long damage track created on June 1, 2011 when a tornado tracked from Springfield to Sturbridge, Mass. An earlier image is now available from 2010 that enables people to more clearly see the damage path the June 2011 twister created on its eastward track. A Landsat 5 satellite image from October 8, 2010 has been released from NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey that shows the area between...

The U.S. Geological Survey says data from Landsat satellites played a central role in the creation of a new, award-winning type of water use mapping. Using Landsat imagery supplied by the USGS in combination with ground-based water data, the Idaho Department of Water Resources and the University of Idaho developed a novel method to create water-use maps that are accurate to the scale of individual fields, USGS officials said. The USGS Landsat archive, dating back to1972, has proven to be a...

The U.S. Geological Survey says its 25-year-old Landsat 5 satellite is back in service collecting data after beginning to tumble in space last month. Engineers at the USGS Landsat Flight Operations Center in Sioux Falls, S.D., said the historically reliable Earth observation satellite began tumbling Aug. 13. Scientists immediately started processes to protect the satellite and to restore capability. Landsat 5 continues to collect data, the USGS said in a statement. In fact, the one-millionth...
