A better knowledge of the carbon flux is needed to: 1) 2) • Understand the functioning of the vegetation (yearly cycle, response to meteorological anomalies) • Identify and quantify the terrestrial ecosystem Carbon sinks and sources at yearly scales (where are the Carbon sinks/sources; how do they evolve with the climate changes) • Quantify the oceanic Carbon sources and sinks at yearly scales and their responses to the announced climate changes • Contribute to the measurement of Carbon emission linked to fossil fuels use. The idea of MicroCarb is to develop a mission able to compete with large satellite ones in terms of performances while keeping the cost as low as possible.

CoastSnap - SWRCMP. Estimation of global coastal sea level extremes using neural networks. Accurately predicting total sea-level including tides and storm surges is key to protecting and managing our coastal environment.

Estimation of global coastal sea level extremes using neural networks

However, dynamically forecasting sea level extremes is computationally expensive. Here a novel alternative based on ensembles of artificial neural networks independently trained at over 600 tide gauges around the world, is used to predict the total sea-level based on tidal harmonics and atmospheric conditions at each site.

The results show globally-consistent high skill of the neural networks (NNs) to capture the sea variability at gauges around the globe. An experiment to test satellite radar interferometry-observed geodetic ties to remotely monitor vertical land motion at tide gauges.

4 big tech trends for 2021 - brand post - Hindustan Times

No matter where you are based in the world, it is nearly impossible to escape the way new technologies are reshaping everyday life. So, how will your work and personal life be changed by technology in the next 12 months? Digital Earth Challenges and Future Trends. 26.2.1 Big Data Management in Digital Earth In discussing the challenges highlighted in earlier chapters of this manual, the authors have demonstrated the tremendous volume, variety, veracity, and velocity (the four Vs) challenges for Big Earth Data (Guo et al. 2017; Yang et al. 2017).

Some tech mentioned here is well understood. New to me were: Hyper connectivity, Edge/fog computing and in-memory computing and processor advances – tomaugust

The four Vs impose new requirements on computing, data management, information extraction, and knowledge discovery, as well as the detection of events of interest, needed to realize the value (the fifth V) of Big Earth Data for Earth science and applications (Guo et al. 2014; Lee and Kang 2015; Shu 2016;Yang et al. 2019). Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020. Hyperautomation, blockchain, AI security, distributed cloud and autonomous things drive disruption and create opportunities in this year's strategic technology trends. Human augmentation conjures up visions of futuristic cyborgs, but humans have been augmenting parts of the body for hundreds of years. Glasses, hearing aids and prosthetics evolved into cochlear implants and wearables. Even laser eye surgery has become commonplace. But what if scientists could augment the brain to increase memory storage, or implant a chip to decode neural patterns?

What if exoskeletons became a standard uniform for autoworkers, enabling them to lift superhuman weights? Global Environment Monitoring and Sensing Market Projected to be Worth USD 20.37 Billion by 2021: Technavio. Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2019. Blockchain, quantum computing, augmented analytics and artificial intelligence will drive disruption and new business models. Read more: Gartner Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2020 Although science fiction may depict AI robots as the bad guys, some tech giants now employ them for security.

Companies like Microsoft and Uber use Knightscope K5 robots to patrol parking lots and large outdoor areas to predict and prevent crime. The robots can read license plates, report suspicious activity and collect data to report to their owners. These AI-driven robots are just one example of “autonomous things,” one of the Gartner Top 10 strategic technologies for 2019 with the potential to drive significant disruption and deliver opportunity over the next five years. COVID-19: Post-Coronavirus technology trends. A new look at our 2020 Technology Vision trends When we published Accenture’s 2020 Technology Vision report, COVID-19 was not yet a global pandemic.

Now, it’s the greatest challenge the world has faced in decades. In just a few short months, it’s transformed people’s lives on an unprecedented scale, impacted every industry, and altered the course of companies’ growth. But the pandemic has not slowed innovation—it’s amplifying it to historic levels.

The Future of Earth Observation – Persistent observation, a persistent problem For all the improvements in spatial and spectral resolution, agility and accuracy, satellites suffer from one serious drawback: they have to follow the laws of orbital mechanics and keep moving around the Earth. This means they cannot hang around an interesting location, to keep a persistent watch on it, except… Continue reading High-altitude Pseudosatellites, the future of Earth observation?

In the article on Persistent Surveillance, I described the options for keeping a constant, 24/7 watch on a location though the use of high-altitude satellites. NASA's Earth Observing System. High-altitude Pseudosatellites, the future of Earth observation? – Persistent observation, a persistent problem For all the improvements in spatial and spectral resolution, agility and accuracy, satellites suffer from one serious drawback: they have to follow the laws of orbital mechanics and keep moving around the Earth.

This means they cannot hang around an interesting location, to keep a persistent watch on it, except if they are in geostationary orbit. However, geostationary orbit is so far from the Earth that to get any kind of reasonable resolution (say 1m), huge mirrors are required (20m for a 1m resolution), making this an unworkable proposition in the near term for optical surveillance. Alternatives exist, in the form of large constellations that always have at least one satellite over the area of interest. The Pros, Cons, And Predictions For A OneWeb UK GNSS. It was announced last week that a consortium including the UK Government has won the bid to rescue the OneWeb satellite constellation from bankruptcy. This has been much heralded in the press as the opportunity for the UK to secure its own Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) after Brexit has reduced our access to the secure components of the Galileo system.

Some observers have however declared that the UK has bought the wrong satellites for this. Seamless Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Archive for Interferometry Analysis.

Unlocking the value in data as a commons. These enable people to share their data, anonymously, for specific purposes or social benefit. Some data commons specialise in particular types of data, such as health, and have a very specific purpose. These commons are not open to the public in the same way, as the data is far more sensitive and members of the commons use the restriction as leverage to give themselves a voice and stake in how it used.
