Global sustainable development is only possible on the basis of comprehensive and up-to-date environmental assessments. Decision-makers can thus be provided with scenarios generated from environmental data and modelling.
Satellites allow systematic observations and measurements from space (e.g., the qualities of air and water). The information allows a detailed analysis of greenhouse gas concentrations, the extent and thickness of polar ice and glaciers, the state of vegetation and desertification. Earth system models can estimate the causes and consequences of rising greenhouse emissions on sea-level rise and ocean acidification. Data and models in tandem provide valuable information on the protection of our Earth system including its biodiversity. In this working group, we will discuss scientific results as well as the consequences for society.
There is no plan B for climate because there is no planet B.
