Thematic Report: Technology and Environment

by Okoth Okoth | 18-02-2020 20:32 recommendations 0 recommendations

Not on one or two occassions have we used scientific data on climate issue without knowing its source. NASA is a world leader in climate studies and earth science. It makes robust scientific data information available to the public, policy makers, environmental activists, decision makers and scientific and planning agencies around the world.

NASA uses complicated technology in observing earth from a global perspective in an immersive, 3-D movement. For example, NASA’s satellite called “Eyes on the Earth,” monitors our planet vital signs such as sea level height, Antarctic ozone and atmospheric carbon monoxide concentration. Moreover, it spots volcanic eruptions and forest fires using the carbon monoxide vital signs and also traces the movement of water around the globe using the gravity map from NASA’s GRACE satellites. This technology is really contributing to early warning in cases of disaster.

How would we know and study Earth events without such technology? “Eyes on Earth” has set a pace in quantifying, understanding and understanding how climate change affects our planet. This information is then used by policy makers in planning and developing policies that helps in mitigation.

Technology plays a vital role in environment conservation. It is a uniting factor to change makers who are keen in addressing climate change and global warming. Technology helps us get scientific data needed to understand vital signs of planet Earth.

    Hello Okoth

    Data science is a rising field in the world. Data can help us predict the future and analyze the past, but it is hard to collect them. In this aspect, technology plays huge role in collecting valuable data. You provided in the report a great example of how technology can be used to collect it. The thing is that those data should be used wisely to preserve the environment. I believe some advanced technologies using data science are developed and help stop global warming!

    Hey Okoth!
    It's Lisa.

    Scientific data come to play a critical role especially when we are having a discussion with the people that have not yet acknowledged the importance and urgency of the climate issue. In order to persuade them, we need specific data and numbers that can prove the seriousness of the status quo as well as the potential threats lying.
    I strongly agree with you!

    Enjoyed reading it :)
