Chapter 1: Satellite Remote Sensing of the Earth
9:00 – 9:30
Remote sensing is a method of obtaining information about the properties of an object without coming into physical contact with it.
Satellite data are used for many applications, including monitoring global weather, studying climate change, and observing the environment.
Satellites provide consistent, routine, global coverage of environmental events
Important Satellite Characteristics: Temporal Resolution
Geostationary Environmental Operational Satellites (GOES)
Examples of Geostationary Satellites
NASA’s Polar-Orbiting Satellites
NASA Air Quality Polar-Orbiting Satellites
The A-Train: Afternoon Overpass Polar-Orbiting Satellites
Advantages far outweigh the challenges!
