The Landsat 9, which was launched on 27 September this year, has collected its first images of the planet Earth. The pictures released by the joint mission between the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have provided a preview of how Landsat 9 will help people understand the effects of climate change and manage vital resources.
The photographs released by Landsat 9 show glimpses from the Navajo Country in Arizona, the Florida panhandle, the city of Detroit with its surrounding area as well as the shorelines and coastal islands of North Australia and landscapes of the Himalayas. The data from these images will help in managing irrigation and monitoring the health of crops. The images, which were collected on 31 October, are available to the public.
