Discover our planet's changing climate through the eyes of satellites with Climate from Space, a new digital book for iPad and Android tablets featuring interactive maps and video interviews with top scientists.
Showcasing more than 30 years of global satellite observations, this interactive app explains climate change, the impact it has on our daily lives, and how satellites are monitoring the climate.
In a new way of presenting scientific research, the digital book integrates more than 500 gigabytes of data from ESA's Climate Change Initiative into virtual globes and maps. It shows how key climate variables such as ocean temperature, sea level, carbon dioxide and soil moisture are changing through time.
