‘Satellite Observations for Climate Resilience and Sustainability’ will be the third of five lectures in the #CCLS2018 series.

Observations from Earth observing satellites are now the primary source of information on climate change and prediction. They also underpin the management of adaptation to climate change and its mitigation, together with wider issues of sustainability addressed thought the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and disaster risk reduction.

Prof. Briggs will show examples of how observations provide evidence of ongoing change in the climate system, and how we might use these and other data to be able better to manage, and increase our resilience to, future change.

Reception (with eco-friendly sandwiches, snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks) to follow.
