My colleagues and professors, Dr. Matt Hansen and Dr. Tom Loveland, are featured in this video clip about Google Earth integrating timelapse videos of Earth taken from over 40 years with LandSat.

Video description:
Congratulations to the Landsat program on 40 years of continuous earth observation! Since July 1972, NASA's Landsat satellites have gathered images over the entire land surface of the Earth, creating the most complete record ever assembled. These images, archived at USGS, reveal dynamic changes over time due to human activity (deforestation, urbanization) and natural processes (volcanic eruptions, wildfire). Now, Google Earth Engine allows scientists, researchers and the public to easily view and analyze this treasure trove of planetary data.
