Satellites and offshore wind farms? A match made in space

With an increasing number of satellites launched in recent years and advances in the image analysis methods, remote sensing data has proven itself as a cheap and very valuable source of information for planning, construction and monitoring of offshore wind farms (OWF). Continue reading “Satellites and offshore wind farms? A match made in space”

Ever wondered what Earth Observation satellites are capable of monitoring?

You might be surprised at the numerous different applications they can provide

Earth Observation (EO) satellites have become increasingly smaller, cheaper and easier to launch – and they are now orbiting the earth in record numbers. This is great news for the water environment as an increased number of satellites equate to more frequent and detailed data, allowing more water challenges to be solved along with the development of new remote sensing techniques.

Is your future water use for irrigation a cause for concern?

Improve your planning of agriculture with satellite data

In many parts of the world, water resources are under pressure due to the ever-increasing demand from growing populations and the need for increased agricultural production. Water scarcity is expected to increase in the future, in particular for the 40% of the world classified as semi-arid. Continue reading “Is your future water use for irrigation a cause for concern?”
