Climate from Space, ESA's iPad App, lets you take a closer look at visualisations of climate data being produced through the European Space Agency's Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme. In the data viewer, see the changes through time of 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 use the buttons along the bottom to compare the data sets and switch between a globe and a map view. Informative text describes why measuring these parts of the Earth system is important for climate science, and how this can be seen in the visualisations of satellite data.
Android version coming later in the year.
