Satellites to map ocean clouds that keep Earth cool
Satellites to map ocean clouds that keep Earth cool
A new European Space Agency (ESA) mission involving UCL researchers will 3D map Earth's "cooling blanket" of low-lying ocean clouds that may be at risk of disappearing due to climate change. The 10 Earth Explorer mission, known as Harmony, has been approved by the ESA Programme Board on Earth Observation, meaning it can move from the preparatory phase into the design consolidation and implementation phase, with a launch scheduled for 2029.
