Time for rethinking of what focus the next symposium must have?
The users’ need for detailed satellite pictures all hours of the day, has forced the satellite data suppliers to rethink old ways of usage and think of new ways. Optical sensors can only see the Earth’s surface parts of a day, the remaining time the surface is hidden by darkness during the nights or bad […]
When the communication equipment EDRS-A on board the Eutelsat 98 communication satellite is finally operative, it will brighten every day for users of earth observation data. Today, the users often wait for data from one of the main ground stations, however, with the new technology data in very near real time from the whole […]
Conferences – Fairground for the Good Ideas
Today, satellites play an increasing role when it comes to most functions in our modern society, not least when it comes to environmental issues. Since the first satellite launch, about sixty years ago, the technology has been in constant development, thus, satellite sensors in space now represent the main sources for knowledge about, and monitoring of the world’s environment.
Sentinel 1A Continues the Work ERS and Envisat Satellites Start
The prevailing view of NASA is mainly concentrated around spectacular missions to the International Space Station, to the moon and beyond etc., but NASA is much more. NASA also manages the world’s most advanced and most comprehensive programmes for observations on. The organization operates fifteen satellite missions that produce close to 4 terabytes of data every day. Through these satellite sensors, NASA operates and controls the world’s largest scientific data and information system for collecting, processing, archiving, and distributing earth system data to users worldwide.

IASI – new sensor onboard the MetOp/A Satellite
Numerical weather prediction (NWP) which is the backbone of modern weather forecasting needs daily accurate updates of earth surface parameters. One of these parameters is sea ice. The variations in sea ice impact the ocean-atmosphere fluxes of heat, momentum and water, and thereby the development of both local as well as large scale weather systems.
