Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are giving scientists in North America new insights into detecting potential earthquakes before they strike.  

Accurate early warning of earthquakes is challenging because of earthquakes’ unpredictable nature. They often strike on otherwise normal days and frequently strike with fatal force. In spite of recent advances in seismology, the prediction of earthquakes remains difficult.

The European Union’s latest Earth observation satellite, Sentinel-3B, was successfully launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in the Russian Federation on 25 April. The satellite will monitor the Earth’s land, oceans and atmosphere. It will also be able to track disasters and provide up-to-date information to emergency response teams.

NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission core observatory satellite has been an integral asset in disaster risk management last month. This satellite is able to produce information on precipitation particles within cloud layers by using an active radar; information that is beneficial in monitoring, predicting, and tracking the progression of cyclones and other extreme weather phenomena.

China launched three Gaofen-1 Earth observation satellites on 31 March. These high-resolution satellites will be used in a range of different fields, including disaster early warning and emergency response.

The satellites were put into orbit via a Long March 4C rocket, which lifted off from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Centre in China. These satellites will provide high-resolution images which are accurate to two metres in distance and will work together with another, previously launched Gaofen-1 satellite.

New tool for global severe index allows climate community to assess meteorological drought by terrestrial water storage

A new technique has been developed to help mitigate the effects of drought. The satellite-based drought severity index (DSI) has been created using terrestrial water storage changes from the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) to help identify the timing, extent and severity of droughts for adequate relief efforts.
