Viewing the Health of Earth’s Oceans from Space – Agency leaders confer with each other on the difficult challenges, emerging success, and plans for the future
Room: Sheikh Rashid B
Earth’s Oceans, cover greater than 70% of Earth’s surface and contain 90% of Earth’s biosphere. They are critical to climate, weather, transportation, food, ecosystem health, biodiversity, and security. Satellites provide unique, critical information for understanding how Oceans are responding and, in some cases, forcing climate change, and the many other factors critical to humankind. Hear Agency Earth Observation Leaders provide an integrated view of the challenges, successes, priorities and future plans for satellite oceanography.
