As an Earth observation application engineer at the European Space Agency, Benjamin Koetz spends his time trying to figure out how Earth functions by tracking patterns from space that can’t be seen from the ground, monitoring different environmental processes, collecting data regarding human activities, and making sure that information gathered from satellites is conflated into something that’s useful for the management of natural resources.
He joins the podcast today to discuss all the details of these activities and more, including the different types of observation techniques they employ, applications for Earth observation data, the advantages of having a global view from space, the environmental trends being observed from space, food security intervention efforts informed by the data they gather, laser observation, and the resolution of satellites.
Tune in for all the details, and search the web for real-time satellite images of Earth from space.
