A look at how satellite and land based air quality monitoring works

One of today’s biggest concerns is climate change, and the implications it has and will have on our planet and on our lives.

The effects are widespread, including sea level rise, loss of glaciers and an increased likelihood of extreme weather events.

But climate change also has less obvious impacts, such as on energy supply and demand, and on access to global shipping routes. The Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) adds value to environmental measurements, providing consistent information on the climate anywhere in the world, allowing users to assess the past and to make informed decisions for the future.
