NASA Land-Cover/Land-Use Change Program (LCLUC)

NASA Land-Cover/Land-Use Change Program (LCLUC) LCLUC is an interdisciplinary science program in the Earth Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate. The LCLUC Program was designed to be a cross cutting theme within NASA’s Earth Science.

Aspects of Land-Cover and Land-Use Change research can be found throughout the Earth Science Programs, with an emphasis reflecting the program element under which they are funded e.g. hydrology, ecology or biogeochemistry. LCLUC research can also be found in the NASA Earth interdisciplinary science (IDS), and in various data initiatives. A number of the NASA Graduate Fellowships and New Investigat

International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem: Not just a lifeline for coastal communities

Today is the International Mangroves Day!

According to UNESCO, mangroves are disappearing at a rate that is three to five times faster than overall losses of global forest cover in the face of infrastructure development, urbanisation and agricultural land conversion.

Happy Earth Day to all LCLUCers!

General information

The Land-Cover/Land-Use Change Program (LCLUC) Program was initiated as a cross-cutting scientific research theme within NASA’s Earth Science. It currently falls within NASA’s Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Focus Research Area, although aspects of land cover and land use research can be found throughout the Earth Science Program, albeit with an emphasis on aspects of the program element under which they are funded e.g. hydrology, biodiversity, carbon cycle or biogeochemistry. LCLUC related research could also be found in the Earth Science interdisciplinary studies (IDS), the NASA Applications Program and in various program data initiatives such as the ESIPS, ACCESS and REASONS. In addition LCLUC research is undertaken in NASA Education Program, through its New Investigator Program (NIP) and graduate level, NASA Earth System Science Fellowships (NESSF). A major challenge for the LCLUC program management is to pull together the various land-cover and land-use research activities from the various programs and help the science community to be aware of the different projects and science results that are being generated in different parts of the program. To this end and since its inception, the program has held annual science team meetings both for scientists funded directly by LCLUC and those undertaking LCLUC research in other parts of the NASA Program to come together and share their findings.

Last month, 90 participants met in Phuket, Thailand for a NASA Land-Cover/Land-Use Change Program (LCLUC) and GOFC-GOLD Coordinated The Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) WGCapD science training event on "Remote Sensing of Land-Use/Cover Change and Climate Impacts In Coastal Zone." The meeting aimed to address issues including the effects of rapid land-use/cover changes driven by humans, regional climate change, and loss mangroves and to showcase the potential of remote sensing and geospatial technologies.

When you're recognized by NASA, you know you're doing something right! Recently, four MSU research teams, including faculty from the College of Social Science's CGCEO, were given funding by the NASA Land-Cover/Land-Use Change Program (LCLUC) to transform our understanding of how our land use is evolving.

Happy New Year! We are happy to share recent updates from our Science Team Members and related research on Land Cover and Land Use Change. This edition includes a detailed programmatic update from our Program Manager Dr. Garik Gutman, fresh off the press publications from our team and related projects, published meeting reports, and detailed information on our upcoming meetings. You will find information about our upcoming Spring Science Team Meeting, 3rd joint EARSeL-NASA LCLUC in July in Chania, Greece and the South/Southeast Asia (SARI), International Regional Science Meeting that is set to take place in the Philippines. Be sure to check out our Tools and Training section that includes an invitation to test a newly developed Google Earth Engine Image Pre-processing tool. We are very proud to share that our Science Team Members Dr. Mathew Hansen, Dr. Volker Radeloff, Dr. David Roy, Dr. Eric Vermote, and Dr. Curtis Woodcock have been selected for the 2018-2023 Landsat Science Team. Congratulations to Dr. Darrel L. Williams, Chief Scientist for Global Science and Technology, for receiving the USGS-NASA Pecora Award that recognizes excellence in earth observation and to Dr. Randolph H. Wynne for receiving the Society of American Foresters award for his research in remote sensing applications. We invite you to join our mailing list for future updates and to receive information about our webinar series.
