IRIDIUM® TECHNOLOGY IMPROVES CLIMATE MONITORING
Meteorologists and oceanographers study and forecast weather and climate variability by assimilating observational data from various sources, including satellites, weather balloons, land stations, floats, ships, and data buoys.
Space-borne ocean measurements (remote sensing) have been an increasingly important component of the climate data collection process, which led the European Commission to establish the Sentinel satellite program that measures the temperature, color, and height of the sea surface, as well as the thickness of sea ice.
