Climate from Space iPad App launched
The datasets developed within the Climate Change Initiative are now available through a free iPad App, Climate from Space. This educational tool lets you take a closer look at visualisations of over 30 years’ worth of climate data gathered from satellites.
View interactive maps of changes in sea surface temperature, the ice sheets, sea level, sea ice, carbon dioxide, soil moisture and many more. Play, pause, and go step by step through the years of data; zoom in and out, compare the data sets and switch between a globe and a map view. Informative text describes why measuring the Earth system from space is important for climate science, and describes the changes that can be seen in the visualisations of satellite data.
Download the App here. Produced by Planetary Visions for the ESA Climate Office.
Android version coming later in the year.
