    Well, that depends on how you define satellite! One definition of the word satellite is a body that orbits a larger body. If you take this as the definition of satellite then the answer to our question is millions! This includes actual spacecraft, and any man-made debris that has been made during the past 30 years of space exploration.   The science of earth observation (EO) is gaining ground in South Africa. It gives us a new perspective on our planet, helps us understand our environment, and uses satellite information to anticipate climate variations such as drought or : Nikki Stear.

    Satellite instruments can be calibrated by comparing them to other satellites, as well as to ground observations. Satellite operators have different policies on access to their data. Some organizations have open and free access to the data their satellites generate, while others require payment. A blueprint for scientific investigations: The process of science involves many layers of complexity, but the key points of that process are straightforward. There are many routes into the process — from serendipity (e.g., being hit on the head by the proverbial apple), to concern over a practical problem (e.g., finding a new treatment for diabetes), to a technological development (e.g.

    Thus began the satellite revolution, which was to forever change how people observed the planet. These advances in computer and space technology at the end of the s and the beginning of the s stimulated the creation of the WMO World Weather Watch, and ultimately the WMO Global Satellite Observing Global Satellite Observing System has had unparalleled success in bringing. NASA Earth Observations Serving Society () This brochure offers an overview of the NASA Earth Science Applications, which benchmark practical uses of NASA-sponsored observations from Earth observation systems and predictions from Earth science models.

Observation satellite sensors and climate numerical models are rapidly generating vast amounts of data. In fact, growth of geoscience data has surpassed the capability of existing methodologies and infrastructure for data access, archiving, analysis, and mining (Li, ). Nick Lake's latest young adult novel, "Satellite", is a stunning achievement.

It manages to be original without being overly contrived, and to present a space-based science fiction story that features a teenage protagonist without needing to descend into the realms of fantasy and completely futuristic make-believe/5(26).

The result of a workshop bringing together an international advisory board of experts in science, satellite technologies, industry innovations, and public policy, this book addresses the current and future roles of satellite Earth observations in solving large-scale environmental problems.

Program funds projects that advance the use of Earth-observing, environmental satellite measurements and scientiic knowledge in the decisions, actions, and services of public- and private-sector organizations.

Satellite Earth Observations to Serve Science & Society CEOS (the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites) is made up of 55 Agencies from all around the world committed to coordinating their satellite Earth observation programs and sharing data for a more sustainable and prosperous future.

Data for All: Using Satellite Observations for Social Good. The satellite and science communities must engage with stakeholders to identify priorities and capabilities, enabling the most. William Emery, Adriano Camps, in Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing, Abstract.

Satellite observations have revolutionized our understanding of the cryosphere and the critical role it plays in shaping Earth's climate system. Polar regions play a critical role in the climate system. Ice reflects sunlight, thus reducing the amount of energy being collected by the Earth, it influences.

Satellite instruments can also perform a variety of science experiments including spectral analysis, gravity measurements and radar observations, just to name a few. Spectral analysis, or the study of the light emitted or reflected by various surface materials, can be used to characterize surface materials.

Space science has advanced knowledge in other scientific fields, such as physics. For example, observations of the Moon and other bodies in space helped scientists understand how gravity works. Scientists figured out that the same force that causes an object to File Size: KB.

My new book “Open Space: The Global Effort for Open Access to Environmental Satellite Data” examines the factors that caused some nations to embrace open data sharing, while others continue to restrict access to their environmental satellite data.

The book includes case studies of both WMO and GEO, providing the historical and international. An Earth observation satellite or Earth remote sensing satellite is a satellite used or designed for Earth observation from orbit, similar to spy satellites but intended for non-military uses such as environmental monitoring, meteorology, map making and others.

The first occurrence of satellite remote sensing can be dated to the launch of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1, by the. In this capacity, she leads the Secretariat in coordinating the activities of Member States and the European Commission and 95 Participating Organizations that are integrating Earth observations so that informed decisions can be made across eight Societal Benefit Areas, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Sustainability, Disaster Resilience, Energy.

In the context of spaceflight, a satellite is an object that has been intentionally placed into objects are called artificial satellites to distinguish them from natural satellites such as Earth's Moon.

On 4 October the Soviet Union launched the world's first artificial satellite, Sputnik then, about 8, satellites from more than 40 countries have been launched.

The process of science is a way of building knowledge about the universe — constructing new ideas that illuminate the world around us. Those ideas are inherently tentative, but as they cycle through the process of science again and again and are tested and retested in different ways, we become increasingly confident in them.

Furthermore, through this same iterative process, ideas are. Beyond that, while surface observations are relatively numerous in many parts of the world, they are sparse in others — much of Africa, parts of South America, and the oceans.

A collection of Commentaries published in the journals of the American Geophysical Union illuminate the deep and growing benefits of research.Those observations give us a record of space weather storms that goes far back in time.

Aurora watchers can notice how bright an aurora is and how long it lasts. This helps us know how strong a space weather storm is. Using Radio Waves to Observe the Ionosphere .
