Space-based technologies are involved in climate monitoring

At COP21 in Paris, an unprecedented agreement was reached: More than 150 heads of state agreed on quantified targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.The signal is clear. All economic sectors, including the space sector, will be involved. 

Space-based technologies are already deeply involved in climate monitoring. Thanks to satellite programs launched by space agencies, including the French Space Agency, CNES, we have over thirty years of continuous Earth observations to serve climate studies.

CLS responds to the climate change challenge with innovative and new satellite applications for enhancing operational observation and practical response to climate change.
