EarthMapps.io – Remote sensing of land-atmosphere interactions

http://www.earthmapps.io/index.html

EarthMapps is a research team of the Department of Geoscience & Remote Sensing of Delft University of Technology (TUDelft) under supervision of Stef Lhermitte (@StefLhermitte via Twitter). The team focuses on the use of multi-source satellite imagery to assess land-atmosphere interactions. The goal is to develop innovative remote sensing methods for quantifying the effect of climate (change) on snow/ice, vegetation dynamics, etc. and determine their (climate) feedbacks. EarthMapps works on big data solutions to bridge the gap between remote sensing technology and its (scientific) applications.

Utilising specialist expertise from the Member States, Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) are dedicated centres of excellence for processing satellite data and form an integral part of the distributed EUMETSAT Application Ground Segment. AC SAF consortium members develop radiative transfer calculation methods and other algorithms for  polar-orbiting satellites Metop-A and Metop-B. AC SAF produces near real-time data products including total ozone, trace gas total columns (NO2, SO2), tropospheric NO2, coarse and high-resolution ozone profiles, absorbing aerosol index and solar noon UV index.

http://www.globalcarbonproject.orghttp://globalcarbonatlas.org

The Global Carbon Project aims at assisting the international science community to collaborate on the carbon budget through a partnership between the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme and Future Earth. It produces an annual report on the data on the carbon sources and sinks due to human activities and how they affect the environment. Each year, the data set is made available through the Global carbon Atlas thanks to the support of Fondation BNP Paribas. Available in five languages (English, French, Spanish, Chinese and Russian).

NASA Earth

https://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/index.html

NASA uses the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of our home planet, improve lives, and safeguard our future, to monitor Earth’s vital signs from land, air and space with a fleet of satellites and ambitious airborne and ground-based observation campaigns. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth’s interconnected natural systems with long-term data records. The agency freely shares this unique knowledge and works with institutions around the world.
