A introduction

A - Introduction

  • A One minute DVD film on the subject with emphasis on Risk Assessment and EWSs for weather /climate related hazards

  • During 2007-2013,the Global Centre for Compliance, Hazards and Disaster Management, (GLOCECOHADIM),Cameroon, the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) ,France, and the International Global Monitoring Aerospace Systems (IGMASS) Russia, conducted many studies of climate change and Green systems as part of the celebrations of the 50th Anniversary of the creation of IAA.

  • Key areas for consideration on the study included:

    -Observing the Earth from Space

    -Leveraging Space-Ground Systems Integration

    -Enabling New Green Systems and energy.

    Space applications offer a unique perspective of the earth its resources and human impact upon it.

Introduction continue

Introduction continue

  • In the history of humanity, no matter how many millions and billions of years that humanity existed and continue to exist in the system of indefinite, exponential development, weather/climate related hazards would continue, no matter where it all began,

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank the world community particularly the formal Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic whose vital role as the first to initiate the first and most complicated step in the transformation of human terrestrial into human astronuatical

  • It was thanks to you that my presentation today at the UN/Belarus workshop is possible,

  • Thus the next 100 generations of all humanity is in space. A genius predictor K.E. Tsiolkovsky once said that –the earth is the cradle of humanity, but the future belongs to human astronuatical.

  • NB/ The cycle of the global climate change were formulated behind the cycles of solar activity.

Structure of iaa igmass project implementation consist of space air and ground segments

Structure of IAA-IGMASS PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION Consist of space, air, and ground segments

  • Orbital segment of the systems has to consist of upper (GEO) and lower deck groups of satellites-also uses extra info obtained from satellites of other international disaster monitoring systems (GEOSS, GMES, DMC, Charter Disaster, Sentinel Asia).

  • The space-based segment enables obtaining of background distributions and emission of disturbances of thermal magnetic, and gravitational fields and plasma in ionosphere and detects changes in the ozone layer and atmosphere

  • It also detects geodynamic transformations in Earth’s crust and hydrodynamics fluctuations in underground waters, which could be forerunner of natural and man made disasters

  • Obtained data are transmitted to the situational centers for control during emergency situations which supplies users with information on results of monitoring.

Structure of global system providing monitoring information has three levels

C background information why 100 years

C – Background Information, Why 100 Years

  • The cycle of the global change of climate were followed behind the cycles of solar activities,

  • The long term nature of climate patterns necessitates that observation data be adequately preserved over long periods of time to ensure reliable long term records

  • The human race survived, survives and will survive within zone of permanent threats and risk which are an integrated component of all spheres of its activities

  • The epochs ,generations and technologies have been passed and disappeared/ mitigated, some were handed down to the next generations but for all the new threats and risks were always arisen, at a significant scale more menacing than the previous ones

  • Figures on disasters threads depicts schematically the global external and internal threats whereby humanity enters the post industrial phase of civilization-information society.

  • Hence are given the key contradictions remaining in force like exponent growth in population, limited resources, high frequency of weather/climate related hazards, cyclones of solar activity, asteroids attach/comet affects humanity.

  • Collision of the earth with big asteroids and comets were led to universal cataclysms-This sword of Damocles hangs permanently over the earth.

F conclusion

F - Conclusion

  • Today’s task for the next 100 generations entails a transition to the stable development that assumes a step-by-step restoration of all natural ecosystems to an acceptable level that provides a stability of the environment and real opportunity for the existence of future mankind generations meeting their vital needs and interests,

  • Noting that space weather /climate are the major determining factors of the influence of near-earth objects on our daily life

  • Taking this factor into account, it is necessary to consider the influence of solar and geomagnetic activity on weather and global warming climate

  • However, as in creating models of sudden ionosphere perturbations in the periods of flares on the Sun and in creating models of UV and optical emissions of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere – thermosphere predictive models , the main problem remains that there are no data on the spectrum and the absolute flux of solar soft X rays and EuV radiation

  • This is one of our top priority directions as we leave this very important UN/Belarus Workshop, in Minsk,16, November,2013

  • Alternatively, we can make a conclusion here that the Next 100 Generations Future factor of Heliogeobiocorrelation is hereby proposed whereby a microvolt radiation of the earth’s ionosphere, excited into Rydberg states by Super thermal electrons, most important photoelectrons of the earth’s upper atmosphere will influence the solar geomagnetic activity on weather and global warming climate.
