This paper assesses how the Himawari-8 satellite can be used for active fire detection. Satellite sensors are an important source of observations of fire activity. Next generation geostationary satellites provide earth observations very frequently.
GPS satellite in the Earth's orbit
A new method for detecting tsunamis using existing GPS satellites orbiting Earth could serve as an effective warning system for countries worldwide, according to a new study by an international team led by UCL researchers.
Space-based and remotely sensed technologies can help to simplify, justify or improve anticipatory action programmes – and may even provide opportunities for additional programmes based on triggers that have not yet been considered.
