Observing Earth Climate and Weather from Space
Earth observations are nowadays key tools for a better understanding of the climate and weather patterns in different regions around the globe. In this webinar, I will discuss the significant contribution of Earth Observations from space towards unravelling several phenomena and allow scientists to gain knowledge on how they occur and what are their characteristics and impacts.
