Advancements by the landslides team at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center are featured in a new science update published in the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) science news magazine, Eos. “Satellites Support Disaster Response to Storm-Driven Landslides,” goes into depth about the team’s work using satellite data to provide regional perspectives of landslide hazards resulting from Hurricanes Eta and Iota last fall when the two major hurricanes hit Central America in rapid succession last fall.

The article outlines how the landslides team worked with the NASA Applied Sciences Disasters Program to deliver several valuable experimental products for the very first time and illustrates how partner agencies used NASA’s innovative tools and products to inform regional landslide response and recovery efforts. NASA’s Robert Emberson, Dalia B. Kirschbaum, Thomas Stanley, Pukar Amatya, and Sana Khan contributed to the story.
