From space, we observe the changes happening on our planet.
We assess the state of the ozone layer
We measure air pollution

2021 - Drought in the Northern Great Plains
We study changes to our ecosystems
2019-2020 - Mackenzie River in Canada
We track changes in ice and permafrost conditions
2021 - Peyto Glacier in Banff National Park
We support emergency response activities during disasters
2022 - Floods in Manitoba
Satellites are valuable tools we use
to better understand climate change and adapt to it.
