Harmful Algal Blooms: The Importance of Early Satellite Detection

Utah Lake, captured by NASA/USGS's Landsat 8, June 20, 2017. The darker green area shows the highest concentration of algal blooms. Image: NASA.

Harmful algal blooms endanger the health of both humans and animals through poor water quality and can cause economic loss to coastal communities. Such algal blooms are composed of an excess of cyanobacteria, which becomes dangerous when subjected to certain conditions, such as extended sunlight exposure, stagnant water, and the increased presence of various nutrients from fertilizers. Under such circumstances, cyanobacteria aggressively multiply, causing water to have a viscous, green appearance, discernible from space.

Peru's INDECI & CONIDA host webinar on the use of satellite technologies in disaster risk management research

Webinar on the Use of Satellite Technologies in Disaster Risk Management Research (INDECI & CONIDA)

Like many countries in Latin America, Peru is exposed to a variety of natural hazards that have triggered disasters in previous decades.   Disaster preparedness, response and recovery efforts are coordinated by the National Civil Defense Institute (INDECI).   In recent years, INDECI has benefited from the advisory support provided by Peru’s National Commission for Aerospace Research and Development (CONIDA).  Taking advantage of this advisory support, INDECI developed and launched at the end of 2018 its Agenda

Knowledge Centre on Earth Observation

Launch of the Knowledge Centre on Earth Observation

Actionable information from Earth observation (EO) data has become increasingly valuable to public and private efforts that improve our planet and people. The Knowledge Centre on Earth Observation will serve as a focal point to translate this data into evidence for EU policymaking decisions and implementation.

The village of Avispa was hit by a flood event in 2008. 8 people died and various houses were destroyed. The high disposition for flooding still exists today. The Red Cross supports the community of Avispa in planning of protective measures. This requires a reliable hazard and risk analysis that takes into account the individuality of future events. For this purpose, the Red Cross combines qualitative and technical methods of analysis. In the presentation, these methods will be presented with a special focus on EO methods.

The role of the Earth Observation industry in emergency situations and crisis response has significantly grown in recent years. Climate change brought forest fires, floods and other emergency states that have put Earth Observation and its data to the forefront. Data provided by the Earth Observation industry provides insights that allow emergency services to put their action plan in place appropriately and act timely.
