Satellite CryoSat from ESA detected that Arctic ice volume on November 2016 were the lowest and similar to records from the same month in 2011 and 2012. The ice has increased by only 10%, a low figure, for the beginning of the winter season.

CryoSat calculates surface height variation of ice with extreme precision thanks to tools like the radar altimeter that allow accurate documentation of changes in volume.

Satellite archives information combined with a new cloud computing platform offer early warning of landslides. An example of this is Carmenes del Mar resort, in the south coast of Spain, that suffered from landslides leaving homes destructed. Combining radar images from various satellites, a team of Spanish researches from the group Analisis del Relieve y Procesos Activos (ARPA) could detect motion of less than a centimeter per year.

Scientists analysis of radar scans from satellites provides new data on the consequences of the earthquake that affected the central part of Italy on October 30th.

Italian experts have used radar imagery from Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellites to detect considerable east-west and vertical displacements of the ground in areas like Montegallo, Norcia and Castelluccio.
