CEOI Article - Radar Monitoring From Satellites Helps to Protect the Arctic Ocean

The Arctic plays an important role in regulating and driving the global climate and it is experiencing significant change. Whether this is seen as positive or negative depends on ones’ interests. Our knowledge of what is happening in the Arctic ocean comes from a string of satellite missions that have been monitoring the area over this period. Satellite monitoring is the only source of consistent, repeatable, regional scale, calibrated, year-round data, and is both logistically and financially impossible to obtain in any other way. CEOI is funding a wide range of innovative new instruments that measure our weather, our atmosphere, the polar regions, and many other aspects of the natural environment.
