On 14:19 on 10 December 2018, the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer on board Metop-C performed its first measurement.
The Atmospheric Spectroscopy Group at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) have been using the Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) onboard Metop satellites to identify global ammonia hotspots, and they have kindly shared their findings with us.
Why we need Metop-C – Observations from polar orbit benefit weather forecasting and climate monitoring on Earth
While Metop-C gets prepared for lift-off on the morning of 7 November, let’s take the time to look at the reasons for launching and operating such a complex system. What are the benefits for weather forecasting and climate monitoring? Why...
Is it possible to predict where a wildfire is likely to start? Or to say how ferociously it will burn before it has even ignited? Can satellite observations help?
