A Climate Emergency
Today, we have unprecedented access to satellite remote sensing data and technologies that can help us better detect, monitor and measure these changes. The computational capability to analyze this data today is critical in making better management decisions and creating policies to reverse the damage caused to the Planet.
Leveraging Satellite Data
The prize challenge can be used to reward successful advances in the state-of-the-art while creating opportunities for space education and outreach, and stimulate economic growth and development in the sector.
Using satellite data, in combination with other data sources, help develop verifiable methods to measure carbon sequestration on land or in coastal areas.
