The effects of climate change can already be seen across the globe in all aspects of life— from environmental to economic. Earth observation is crucial to understanding the global climate system and changes to the atmosphere, land and oceans. From the pattern of sea-level rise to the cooling effects of increased stratospheric aerosols— better understand Earth with the macro and micro-scale spatial coverage of satellite observations.
Global surface temperatures are increasing, global sea levels are rising, ice is melting, and changes in the pattern of precipitation are bringing intense rainfall and floods to some areas and devastating droughts to others. Satellite measurements are essential to improving our understanding of climate change and formulating effective strategies.
