Lush Green to Brown

Posted: 25 Oct 2016 05:33 AM

It does not take a fancy satellite to tell us that our landscape is mostly brown these days, but we might as well take a look since we have the fancy Terra and Aqua MODIS satellites. The featured image compares true color imagery from Sunday with an image two months earlier in late August. It is remarkable to note the change in color over this period. The wet and humid summer created very lush conditions over Iowa and the August image indicates that dark green color.

Good = 13
Bad = 0
