The USGS announced the first look image from the Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM). The image captures both the host institution of the NC CSC, Colorado State University, as well as the Galena fire scar just west of CSU. The NC CSC is a member node of the NASA Applied Sciences DEVELOP program and the director, Jeff Morisette, worked at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center for 10 year prior to joining the USGS. The center is integrating climate observations and models with remote sensing observation to help meet its mission of bringing the best available earth science to help land managers within the Department of Interior.
