Space, Satellites And Solutions
The Paris Agreement highlights the importance of good emissions monitoring. Satellites and space applications offer a solution for accurate and long-term climate change monitoring. This meeting will outline these solutions and then discuss new approaches in this area.
The meeting will review Essential Climate Variables (or ECVs). ECVs were developed by the World Meteorological Organisation to provide an empirical basis for understanding past, current, and possible future climate variability and change.
Leading researchers will give presentations on how we make observations of the Earth system and how this can provide information on the land surface, ocean and atmosphere, and key processes that link these components. Satellite applications support emissions monitoring by producing high-resolution observations of the Earth’s surface and atmosphere. Our panel will discuss new approaches to earth observation, future technology and highlight upcoming missions.
