Join us at the Royal Institution of Great Britain to learn about TRUTHS, a climate-focused mission led by the UK Space Agency with international partners and delivered by the European Space Agency.
The lecture, led by Nigel Fox and Emma Woolliams, will examine how TRUTHS makes a ten-fold improvement in how we can observe and quantify climate change through its own direct measurements of the sun’s energy and how that is scattered, reflected and absorbed by the Earth. TRUTHS will also provide a ‘gold standard’ reference data set that can be used to calibrate other satellites.
In this lecture, we will show how TRUTHS will provide such an upgrade in performance of the global satellite Earth observation system, and how that upgrade, along with related work on a broad range of satellite missions, will improve the quality of climate change modelling and forecasting, enable the more rapid identification of changes in the Earth’s system and provide an essential climate information dashboard to support climate mitigation and adaptation action. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about British science at the cutting-edge of understanding climate change.
