Examining the Impact of Satellites on Solar Radiation: Unveiling Earth’s Energy Balance

Do Satellites Reduce the Amount of Solar Radiation Reaching the Earth? 1. Understanding the Role of Satellites in the Earth’s Energy Balance One of the main concerns about the use of satellites is whether they affect the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth’s surface. To answer this question, it is important to understand the

Pansharpening Landsat 8 Imagery for Enhanced Satellite-Based Earth Observation

Satellite Earth observation has revolutionized the way we study and understand our planet. The Landsat program, launched in the 1970s, has been a major contributor to this field, providing a wealth of multispectral data that has been used for a wide range of applications. With the launch of Landsat 8 in 2013, the quality of

Exploring the Gap: Why Don’t We Have Live Update Satellites for Monitoring Skin Temperature?

Skin temperature is an important physiological parameter for monitoring human and animal health and for understanding ecosystem behavior. Infrared thermography is a widely used method for measuring skin temperature, but it has limitations in terms of spatial and temporal resolution. Satellites offer a potential solution to this problem, as they can continuously monitor large areas.

Comparing the Commercialization and Precision of US and EU Weather Satellites

Weather satellites have been instrumental in monitoring weather patterns and forecasting weather conditions accurately and in real time. The United States and the European Union have been at the forefront of weather satellite development and deployment. Both regions have their own unique set of satellites with varying degrees of commercialization and precision. This article compares
