Oceans and atmosphere interlinked
10 January 2018
ESA's Climate Change Initiative is compiling data from Earth Observation satellites across multiple oceans and atmosphere parameters to help improve our knowledge of how the climate is changing.
This is not a one-way process, however, because the atmosphere also affects the oceans and helps to drive ocean circulation, which plays an important role in moderating our climate.

A 7.5-magnitude earthquake and tsunami hit Indonesia on 28 September, destroying homes and hundreds of lives.
Satellite data can be used to support international disaster risk management efforts, such as those in Indonesia. One of the ways in which ESA is contributing to this area is through leading a range of activities in the framework of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Disasters.
