The International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) will hold its 7th Planetary Defense Conference (PDC) on April 26-30, 2021. The bi-annual conference brings together world experts to discuss the threat to Earth posed by asteroids and comets and actions that might be taken to deflect a threatening object. A broad theme of the conference is to identify the technologies, techniques, missions, data sets, and processes that most need development for an international program of planetary defense.

ESA project focuses on merging satellite data for water management and drought forecasting

Sentinel 3. Image: ESA.

A new project of the European Space Agency (ESA) aims to combine data from two different Copernicus Sentinel missions to provide estimates of evapotranspiration at the scale of a single field. The European Space Agency’s Sentinels for Evapotranspiration (Sen-ET) project brings together optical data from the Sentinel-2 mission and thermal data from the Sentinel-3 mission to produce evapotranspiration maps at a resolution of 20m.

This e-learning course was created as part of the Earth Observation for Sustainable Development: Fragility, Conflict and Security project funded by the European Space Agency and aims to give a short but practical introduction to Geospatial Infomation Technology (GIT) in states affected by fragility, with a focus on remote sensing.
 
The course is structured into 4 modules: 
  • Introduction to GIT in Fragile Contexts
  • What Can Satellites See?
  • GIS analysis for Fragile States
  • How To Use Our Online Platform (E04SDFCV)

Scientists from 50 scientific institutions, led by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA) combined 26 independent satellite datasets to show that the Greenland Ice Sheet melt is increasing. The group studied data from 1992 to 2018, taking direct measurements of the continent-sized glacier. The study found that decade averages for ice melt has increased sevenfold from the 1990s.

Sentinel Hub launches second custom script contest

Sentinel Hub’s Earth Observation (EO) browser is hosting its second round of contests for custom scripts to better visualize and analyze the Earth’s surface. EO Browser, developed by Sinergise in close cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA), brings together petabytes of data from many satellite platforms - from ESA’s Copernicus programme to NASA’s Landsat missions.
