Weather satellites provide raw data for weather and climate models. EUMETSAT collects this raw data and distributes the processed data to weather institutes in its member countries, such as the Dutch KNMI. The institutes themselves contribute to the processing of the data. How does this work, how are the data distributed, and what is SURF's role?
Game-changing technology for remote sensing Earth Observation and national-level data visualisation to measure productivity of pasture land, the presence of pollutants, and the impacts of natural phenomena such as erosion or droughts.
Digital Earth Australia, a ground-breaking open source platform, transforms spatial data and satellite imagery into easily accessible tools for planning and decision making, and relies on AARNet for moving data around the research community.
Thanks to a new agreement between CENIC and the City of Alameda in Northern California, students will get to work with first-of-its-kind data captured from autonomous ocean vehicles studying everything from marine wildlife to climate models.
From ancient times to the present, strong and catastrophic quakes have caused tremendous destruction in the territory of Azerbaijan. High-speed Internet is essential in order to process information about earthquakes.
Researchers at the University of California San Diego used satellite images from multiple sources to map and understand city growth patterns in India, with the help of computers trained to distinguish types of growth. The technology is also being used to identify refugee camps and schools in Africa.
For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada.
