Google Earth shows effect of climate change over 40 years

Google’s latest feature, Timelapse, compiles 24 million satellite photos taken from 1984 to 2020 into a dynamic 4D experience which shows the impacts of climate change and human behaviour. Users can see melting ice caps, receding glaciers, massive urban growth and wildfire impact on agriculture.

The future of agriculture will be driven by data

Climate change, along with the measures for tackling it, calls for big changes in how the agricultural sector operates. An increasing amount of Earth observation data, together with rapidly evolving remote sensing technology, is making it possible to adopt a more advantageous, data-driven approach.

Using space technologies to tackle climate change

Satellite technology has long been used for weather forecasting and preparing us for extreme weather events. Now, frontier technologies such as Space 2.0 systems are taking things further, gathering and relaying data related to climate change which, among other things, can help farmers improve yields.

Satellite mapping makes agriculture more sustainable

Satellite mapping, using satellite images to build a composite map of the Earth’s surface, offers a vital source of information. This allows farmers to better monitor their fields, manage their crops and ultimately improve yields and efficiency. This can lead to more sustainable farming.

Artificial intelligence for detailed satellite data analysis

Earth observation satellites generate big amounts of data. Artificial intelligence can help in the analysis of this data, for example it can calculate the levels of heat storage in urban areas. Artificial intelligence can also combine meteorological data with satellite imagery to estimate wind speed.

Solar power stations in space as energy source

Solar farms only provide energy when the sun is shining. Solar power stations in space could orbit and face the sun 24 hours a day. The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency researched how they could send electricity from the solar cells in space to an antenna on Earth using electromagnetic fields.
