On the 8th of June we are celebrating the World Oceans Day to call attention for the protection of our oceans. Thales technology supports the observation on our oceans: Thales Alenia Space built the Sentinel-3 satellites and additional equipment to monitor the level of the ocean as well as its temperature and colour, to track the changes of the ocean in order to detect the climate changes.
The best place to understand the long-term trends affecting our planet is not on Earth, but high above it!
Precision surveillance by increasingly-powerful oceanography and weather observation satellites is delivering some priceless insights. Read on, for more about Thales Alenia Space’s specialised satellites and what we’re finding out.
Today, we can see all the layers in the atmosphere. We can analyse them for temperature, pressure, and gas concentrations. We can detect changes that are the origin of storms, and we can provide advance warning of the kind extreme weather that climate change appears to be generating more frequently. Here's how we do it.
