Protecting Earth’s Natural Resources from Space: Food, Water, Farms, and Forests



The Earth is our one and only home, and human activity resides in almost every corner. As our civilization advances, and as we put increasing pressure on Earth’s resources, we all share in the responsibility of caring for and maintaining our home. One way for each of us to better understand the health of our planet is to see it for ourselves. This session will explain the space-based tools at our disposal to protect our fragile natural resources, including real-time imagery/monitoring and video, machine learning, predictive analytics, and more. Environmental satellite technology isn’t just a financial investment — it’s an investment in the health and well-being of ourselves, our children, and future generations to come.
