The Egyptian desert from space


Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features an agricultural project in the Western Desert of Egypt.

A series of over 150 images captured by the Landsat and Copernicus Sentinel-2 missions show how the project has changed in the last 21 years from 1998 to 2019.

Long-term satellite data is critical for monitoring changes in land cover over time.
