Satellites Eye Winter Cover Crops 

For the second year in a row, farmers in Maryland planted a record amount of winter cover crops in 2016-17. These cold-tolerant crops—including wheat, rye, barley and radish—are planted in the fall. In addition to increasing soil health and boosting yields, cover crops reduce soil erosion and absorb nutrients such as nitrogen that could otherwise affect water quality

Trio of Sentinel Satellites Map Methane Super-Emitters 

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and is the second-largest contributor to climate warming after carbon dioxide.  A tonne of methane, despite its shorter lifespan of about 10 years in the atmosphere, can retain an astounding 30 times more heat than a tonne of carbon dioxide over the course of a century. This means that
