Recognising the value of Earth observation & space data
Acclimatise understands how valuable Earth observation & space data can be, and that making that value known can be challenging. In order to monitor the climate and uncover changing patterns, climate data is of utmost importance. Of the 50 GCOS essential climate variables, roughly half can only be observed from space, making EO an irreplaceable component of climate monitoring. These data are also crucial in regions where insufficient information is available from weather stations, or where on-the-ground assessments of infrastructure are not possible due to safety concerns. Given the cross-cutting nature of climate resilience, the Earth observation & space data needs in this domain are manifold and can range from monitoring forests and urban growth, to data about sea level rise and river discharge, and the state of roads and other critical infrastrucuture.
