Harnessing artificial intelligence for climate science

18 September 2019

Over 700 Earth observation satellites are orbiting our planet, transmitting hundreds of terabytes of data to downlink stations every day. Processing and extracting useful information is a huge data challenge, with volumes rising quasi-exponentially.

New version of GOSAT-2 data released

17 September 2019

A new version of GOSAT-2 FTS-2 and CAI-2 data (v101.101) is being published by JAXA and will be available on ESA's dedicated FTP server.

Using a data cube to assess changes in the Earth system

16 September 2019

Researchers all over the world have a wealth of satellite data at their fingertips to understand global change, but turning a multitude of different data into actual information can pose a challenge. Using examples of Arctic greening and drought, scientists at ESA's ɸ-week showed how the Earth System Data Lab is making this task much easier.

Using artificial intelligence to automate sea-ice charting

10 September 2019

Reliable maps of sea-ice conditions and forecasts are of vital importance for maritime safety, safe navigation and planning. The continued retreating and thinning of Arctic sea ice calls for a more effective way of producing detailed and timely ice information – which is where artificial intelligence comes in.
