|Center for People and the Environment releases Red River Valley flood images|
The Center for People and the Environment has released the latest satellite images of the Red River Valley flood at http://www.umac.org/about/news/rrvFlood2009.html.
The images were captured and processed by the Center from LANDSAT, a system of Earth-observing satellites jointly managed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Since 1972, this system has collected information about Earth from space (see http://landsat.gsfc.nasa.gov/).
The Northern Great Plains Center for People and the Environment was established at UND in spring of 2001 to build and nurture learning communities, creating an integrated view of all Earth's systems, in order to serve humankind's needs and desires for a sustainable and prosperous future (see http://www.umac.org/cpe/index.html). -- Doug Olsen, AgCam project manager, Center for People and the Environment,
