The Arctic is warming at a faster pace than any other region on the planet. The dramatic effects that come with this increase in Arctic temperature have a detrimental impact on the global environment. Drastic sea ice loss in the Arctic, for example, has been linked to natural hazards all over the world.

European Space Agency and Asian Development Bank help Indonesia with rebuilding efforts after 2018 earthquake

This map shows the ground motion during the six months following the earthquake that struck the Indonesian Island of Sulawesi on 28 September 2018, and was obtained by processing Copernicus Sentinel-1 images acquired between October 2018 and April 2019. Image: ESA/contains Copernicus Sentinel data (2018–19), processed by Planetek Rheticus Service.

In September 2018, the Indonesian island of Sulawesi was hit by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake. The impact, combined with the tsunami, landslides, and soil liquefaction that followed, “... claimed well over 2000 lives, destroyed homes, buildings, infrastructure and farmland in several districts,” according to the European Space Agency (ESA)

Italy uses Sentinel-1 satellite data to monitor sinking ground surfaces

Ground deformation map of Pistoia in Tuscany. Using data acquired between 2014 and 2019 from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission, the map shows subsidence in red and uplift in blue. Image: ESA/TRE ALTAMIRA.

The lowering or sinking of the ground’s surface, referred to as land subsidence, can cause serious damage to infrastructure and private property, and in turn, have an adverse impact on communities, individuals, and the economy.
