In the past couple of years, we have had many projects using MODIS and ASTER imagery for mineral exploration. However it is important to also highlight other ways which these satellites can be used to study human geography and environmental science. The following is an interesting article from Science Daily about using the MODIS satellite to study urban heat flux in USA.
