Comment on this resource
These maps show mosquito habitat distribution for four mosquito species. The red-black areas are results of satellite data analysis showing where particular species of mosquitos can be found. The yellow lines are the published boundaries for where these species can be found. There is a strong correlation between the two. These images were created in support of a story describing how NASA is assisting ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
By monitoring the color of reflected light via satellite, scientists can determine how successfully plant life is photosynthesizing. A measurement of photosynthesis is essentially a measurement of successful growth, and growth means successful use of ambient carbon. Until now, scientists have only had a continuous record of photosynthesis on land. But following three years of continual data collected ... Full description.

Comment on this resource
MODIS observations also allow scientists to track two vital signs of Earths vegetation. At Boston University, a team of researchers is using MODIS data to create global estimates of the green leaf area of Earths vegetation and how much sunlight the leaves are absorbing. Called LAI, for Leaf Area Index, and FPAR, for Fraction of absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation, both pieces of information ... Full description.
