The conversion of global tropical forests for large-scale commodity or small-scale agriculture activities contributes greatly to greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, there is significant uncertainty in recent measurements of land carbon […]

Planet Imagery Helps Find that Rapid Sediment Re-Deposition May Limit Carbon Release during Catastrophic Thermokast Lake Drainage

Paper

Arctic permafrost is the frozen ground in and around the arctic circle which holds mass amounts of soil organic carbon. But due to warming global temperatures, Arctic permafrost is beginning to unfreeze and degrade, releasing stored greenhouse gas emissions including carbon dioxide and methane into the atmosphere. Within this landscape, thawing land, […]

Regional High-Resolution Benthic Habitat Data from Planet Dove Imagery for Conservation Decision-Making and Marine Planning

Paper

Coral reefs and their surrounding ecosystems, like seagrasses, are faced with a myriad of challenges due to both local and global stressors. To support the resilience of these vital marine ecosystems, countries have established marine protected area programs, safeguarding the species and habitats within designated regions of their coastlines. However, many nations […]

Detecting Gold Mining Impacts on Insect Biodiversity in a Tropical Mining Frontier with PlanetScope Imagery

Paper

The Amazon rainforest is faced with daily forest loss and degradation, harming local biodiverse ecosystems. This study from Conservation International, Boise State University, and the University of Guyana, demonstrates how scientists can monitor the drivers of this deforestation, including gold mining, with PlanetScope imagery. By capturing satellite images of remote locations near […]
