Modern satellites can help us to monitor water quality in bodies of water. The world's second largest lake shows how this works.
Bloomberg has teamed up with an emissions monitoring organisation to expose the extent of methane leaks across the globe.
Many national governments lack the tools, or will, to accurately assess their reforestation efforts. CTrees is a platform aiming to provide transparency and accountability.
A US startup hopes its 'mircoballoon' platform can provide aerial photography to a new host of users, including charities, farmers and rescuers.
Satellites have long been used to monitor deforestation, but how can that data be used to actively create results on the ground?
By utilising Google's powerful Earth Engine, a Brazilian project is efficiently generating the data needed for policymakers to make better decisions about the environment.
Poorly understood peatlands have long been carelessly exploited, releasing their stored up carbon. With the help of satellites and advanced software, researchers now hope to accurately measure their vital signs.
The satellite images made during large ESA and NASA space missions are freely accessible to the general public - in theory at least. But in reality, not everyone can use them. Niklas Jordan wants to change that, with his project OpenSpaceData.
Satellites are powerful weapons in the fight against deforestation, overfishing and plastic waste. But there are downsides too, to the recent huge increase in the number of satellites orbiting the Earth. In RESET's upcoming event at the re:publica conference 2021, we'll be taking a closer look at projects using satellites for the good of the planet, and discussing a whole range of different solutions for sustainable space travel.
