DLR Panel: Science for Future – Earth Observation Technologies in the Age of Climate Change

Day: Monday 12 October
Time: 16:40-17:20 CEST

As we have seen time and time again over the recent years, climate change is quickly shaping up to be one of the most significant global challenges facing humanity today. In order to address the variety of disasters which are becoming more common by the year – such as floods, droughts, and wild fires – as well as their underlying causes, new technological developments for climate change monitoring and mitigation are constantly being developed, particularly in the space sector.

This panel highlights some of the new technological developments and approaches in climate change monitoring and mitigation using earth observation. Three young professionals will present their work in this area and delve into topics including innovative sensor development, remote sensing data utilization, and the use of citizen science in monitoring our planet. The opening remarks and broader context will be provided by members of the DLR Executive Board Prof. Hansjörg Dittus and Dr. Walther Pelzer.
