  • How valuable are satellite observations of seawater quality?

    Global Earth Observation (GEO), such as satellite observations, helps manage environmental resources and prevent disasters. However, they are expensive. A recent study proposes a framework to assess the value of GEOs in which stakeholders are consulted. GEO consists of all observational information about the state of the world, including satellite observations and 'in situ' information. Many ...

  • Sensors in Space Allow Daily Coastal Water Quality Monitoring

    ST. PETERSBURG, Florida, August 31, 2007 (ENS) - Using data from instruments aboard two NASA satellites, Florida researchers have created a way to map the fleeting changes in coastal water quality from space - something that has long evaded researchers and coastal managers relying only on ground-based measurements. This information has direct application for resource managers working on ...

  • Promising results of environment monitoring satellite Jason-2 one week after launch

    One week has gone by since the launch, and everything is going very well with Jason-2. While the satellite is not yet in its final orbit (to be reached on 3 July), the first test measurements and calibrations have started. EUMETSAT, CNES, NASA and NOAA are cooperating to test every component of the ground segment, and results are looking very promising. The first Doris (Doppler Orbitography and ...

  • New climatology on clouds and radiation from weather satellite data

    The properties and distribution of clouds around the globe are important to climate research. There is now a 28-year compilation of clouds and radiation – a cloud climatology – based on data from polar satellites. The Earth’s climate is largely determined by incoming solar radiation. Clouds help to reflect some of the radiation away. “Roughly 30 per cent of the ...

  • 20 years of monitoring provides insight into New Zealand`s river water quality

    Two decades of monitoring of river water quality by NIWA has provided important information that is helping to care for New Zealand’s iconic rivers. More than 18 000 river water samples have been collected by New Zealand’s National Rivers Water Quality Network (NRWQN) over the past 20 years to monitor river conditions. The Network, which was set up to detect trends and conditions in water ...
