ESA Satellite radar data are being used to map Earth´s vital resources. The latest advances and applications of the POLinSAR remote sensing technique were highlighted at a conference held last week. Polarimetric InSAR — or POLinSAR — is a remote sensing technique based on polarimetric information in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. With this technique, a radar sends polarised pulses towards the target, and the information in the signals backscattered from Earth...

[Watch Video: LandTrenr Analysis of Pacific Northwest] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new computer program is now able to help find patterns that had been buried within vast amounts of scientific data. The LandTrendr is a new way of studying and visualizing Earth science data from a NASA and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) satellite program. LandTrendr has already led to seeing an obscured, slow-moving decline and recovery of trees in Pacific Northwest...

Satellite -- A satellite is an object that orbits another object. With sufficient tangential velocity, the object does not collide with the primary object it orbits, but maintains a distance from that object as the rate at which it falls towards that object is similar to the rate that it travels away, thus the object orbits the primary object and becomes a satellite. In other words: gravitational force serves as the centripetal force needed to make the object circle the primary...
