ARSET - Satellite Observations for Analyzing Natural Hazards on Small Island Nations

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis

Small island nations are highly vulnerable to climate change and natural disasters, such as hurricanes, cyclones, and other storms, which can lead to severe flooding, landslides, and result in the loss of life and property. In addition, a rise in the global mean sea level places island nations at a higher risk for permanent submersion of land, coastal erosion, coastal ecosystem loss or change, salinization, and impeded drainage.

UN-SPIDER and ZFL carry out Virtual Regional Expert Meeting for Southern Africa

Southern Africa is exposed to hydrometeorological, geological, coastal and biological hazards.  The region has been hard hit by droughts in recent years. Tropical cyclone Idai triggered massive floods in Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe in March 2019, and in 2020 several countries experience a severe locust outbreak.  And unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to impact all countries in this region.

Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich Enters Its Operational Phase

On 22 June 2021, the Copernicus Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite entered its operational phase, which means that its first data products have been released to users. The data from Sentinel-6 is being processed by EUMETSAT in their headquarters in Darmstadt, from where the satellite is controlled. The data is then made available to climate researchers and ocean and weather forecasters for operational usage.

Atlantification and Its Recent Effects on Arctic Sea Ice

The accelerated demise of sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is daunting and a cause for concern. Satellite evidence shows that the encroachment of warmer waters from the Atlantic Ocean are causing a decrease in ice regrowth in winter. Satellite-based forecasts are vital for fisheries, shipping, and indigenous communities.

Space Economy: Africa in Focus
