Germany to launch microsatellite to detect forest fires

Microsatellites TET-1 and BIROS

In October 2015, Germany will launch the Berlin Infrared Optical System (BIROS), a microsatellite capable of monitoring forest fires from Space. The microsatellite was partly developed by the Institute of Optical Sensor Systems in Berlin of the German Aerospace Agency (DLR). BIROS will be launched from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India.

NASA: Measuring atmospheric rivers from air and Space

NASA's ER-2 instrumented research aircraft is supporting CalWater 2015, a multiagency, interdisciplinary field campaign, designed to improve the understanding of when and how California ends up on the receiving end of atmospheric rivers. Atmospheric rivers are short-lived weather events that carry a flood of moisture from the tropics to the U.S. West Coast. The instrument also measures how much rain these events can bring, which is a crucial concern in the state’s ongoing historic drought.
