ESA missions are tracking critical climate variables
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency describes how satellite missions are key to understanding the health and behavior of the Earth.
The effects of our planet’s changing climate can be seen on land, at sea, in polar ice caps, and in unusual weather patterns.
According to the ESA, when you look at the concentrations of atmospheric gases that are driving climate change, there is an “obvious correlation between human activity and climate change.”
ESA satellites, which consistently revisit that same areas of the globe, are able to provide critical information about how the Earth is responding to climate change.
