Global climate change is one of the most challenging issues facing policy makers and industry today. Mitigation of and adaptation to climate change will require coordination and collaboration between science, business and governments.
The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPL will build on NPL's capability, working with partners to address the following three areas:
- This article describes the principles adopted within the FIDUCEO project for harmonising satellite data series to obtain long-term climate data records.
- Volunteers from NPL demonstrated Earth observation and spectroscopy at this year's Cheltenham Science Festival.
- Jane Burston discusses the challenges and opportunities of big data in Earth observation.
