Day: Thursday 25 May 2023
Time: 09:30 - 10:30
Location: Scandinavia Ballroom, Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel
Earth's climate is changing, and space provides one of the best places to observe these impacts. Climate change is becoming more evident, with more intense and more frequent extreme weather events and very visible impacts such as wildfires and melting ice sheets. In this context, Earth observation from space provides a critical and timely resource for advancing research, monitoring a dynamic environment, and providing guidance into how communities around the world can manage climate mitigation and adaptation. What critical tipping points are upon us and how can information guide a way forward, especially with the new satellite resources coming online? This panel brings together leading scientists and science advisors from space agencies around the world to discuss the climate challenges of today, advancements in research and technology, and understanding and solutions to help people plan for the future in a changing climate.
