Like thermometers in the sky, satellite instruments can measure the temperatures of Earth’s surfaces. ESA’s new GlobTemperature project is merging these data from a variety of spaceborne sensors to provide scientists with a one-stop shop for land, lake and ice temperature data.
There are satellites for nearly everything out in orbit now-a-days, including some that are meant just to provide measurements of the surface temperature of oceans and seas.
The loss of the Envisat satellite is affecting services by Europe’s Global Monitoring for Environment and Security program. Efforts are being coordinated with other space agencies to fill some of the gaps, but the situation adds further urgency to launch the Sentinel missions.
After spending more than 10 years in space, orbiting the Earth more than 50,000 times, Envisat’s mission has ended, according to a report from ESA today.
Ground controllers from the European Space Agency (ESA) are still trying to make contact with the space agency's flagship Earth observation mission, Envisat.
Controllers from the European Space Agency (ESA) have lost communication with the space agency's flagship Earth observation mission known as Envisat.
ESA's Earth-observing satellites are helping to understand the intricate role that Eurasia's boreal forest â€“ the planet's largest land ecosystem â€“ plays in the chemical make-up of the atmosphere and the global climate system.
More wildfires have burned around the Russian capital this year than in the last decade and a half, according to sensors aboard ESAâ€™s observation satellites.
Earth has a limited amount of water that recycles itself in what is called the â€˜water cycleâ€™.
Aerosols, very small particles suspended in the air, play an important role in the global climate balance and in regulating climate change.
