Now more than ever, our planet needs us to take matters into our own hands, and to bring our ecosystems back into balance.
The only way forward is to get everybody involved.
The poster Remote Sensing & Climate Action, presented on July 2018 at the 4th meeting of NASA Health & Air Quality Applied Science Team (HAQAST4) in Wisconsin, United States, helped pave the way to new collaborative partnerships to facilitate linking sophisticated data sets retrieved from NASA´s unparalleled fleet of Earth-observing satellites with real-world information needs and stakeholders, such as cities, policy-makers, regulatory agencies, inter-intergovernmental panels, NGO´s, environmentalists, activists, academics, and other global networks working to solve the greatest challenge in the history of humanity: climate change.
NASA´s satellites are powerful tools for monitoring changes on Earth, and provide a wealth of knowledge for numerous applications in the areas of health & air quality, water resources, wildfires, disasters, and land management. Remote sensing can helps us, for example, track harmful algae blooms, wildlife migration, or NO2, an unhealthy-to-breathe ingredient in smog & haze that is released from the combustion of fuels for transportation, electricity, and more.
To learn more on how satellite-derived data sets can support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and how YOU TOO can follow these methods to take climate action, Remote Sensing & Climate Action poster is now available for download from NASA Health & Air Quality Applied Science Team´s website, here, or by clicking on Image 1 below.
