Earth Observation

Radar timeseries from Sentinel-1 (D. Small, RSL, UZH)

The aim of Earth observation is to improve our understanding of the Earth and its ecosystems. Only the measurement of environmental conditions makes it possible to detect changes and develop measures to protect the environment and climate. Earth observation serves as an important basis for decision-makers. Sensors on drones, aircraft or satellites help to document the various conditions and processes on the Earth's surface and in the atmosphere. The information gathered shows the influence of humans on the regional, national and global change.
