Hi, I'm Kristina Yamamoto, and I'm a geographer SCEP for the USGS here at the Denver Federal Center in Colorado and I work on remote sensing analysis and GIS for our research projects here.
So, this is a satellite image from 2001 from Landsat, and I use images like this to compare things like vegetation greenness and soil moisture wetness across different sensors. Working at the USGS has been really great. I first started here because I met my current project lead at a conference for geography a few years ago, and we just started talking, and it's worked out really well. Thanks!
