Small to medium-sized man-made freshwater reservoir are a reliable source for drinking water supply, hydropower generation and irrigation purposes worldwide. However, water volumes in these reservoirs can be significantly affected by prolonged droughts, resulting in severe impacts on society (Kozacek, 2014; Mahr, 2018). To mitigate the impact of...

Satellite remote sensing (SRS) provides huge potential for tracking progress towards conservation targets and goals, but SRS products need to be tailored towards the requirements of ecological users and policymakers. In this viewpoint article, we propose to advance SRS products with a terrestrial biodiversity focus for tracking the goals and...

Recently a spectrometer concept has been invented which uses compressive sensing in combination with photonic crystal filters. Here we present an adaption of this concept in push-broom configuration for earth observation. This implementation allows for a compact design, while maintaining a high spatial resolution and high signal-to-noise...

This chapter provides a comprehensive review of techniques, instruments, and methods suitable for mine residue sampling and characterization, using the potential recovery of critical raw materials (CRMs) from bauxite residues as an example. The sampling methods address diverse strategies for assessing the suitability of CRMs recovery,...

Synthetic Aperture Radars (SAR) have demonstrated to be great instruments for space-based Earth observation in the microwave frequency. Metasurface antennas, on the other side, are a new type of planar antennas with a great potential for space applications, as they are compact and easy to produce. Several methods have been developed in the past...

Aerosols are the source of the largest uncertainties in our climate models, blurring our outlook of the future. This has been attributed to the complexity of measuring their properties, which vary over time and space. Atmospheric circulation spreads aerosols across the globe from a point source, which makes satellite-based observations lucrative...

Forest fires are a major ecosystem disturbance at global scale, put pressure on agencies in charge of citizens and infrastructure security and cause unvaluable human losses. Fires are controlled by multiple static and dynamic drivers related to topography, land cover, climate, weather, and anthropic activity. Among these, weather is an active...

Does life exist outside our Solar System A first step towards searching for life outside our Solar System is detecting life on Earth by using remote sensing applications. One powerful and unambiguous biosignature is the circular polarization resulting from the homochirality of biotic molecules and systems. We aim to investigate the...

Surface melt is an important driver of ice shelf disintegration and its consequent mass loss over the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Monitoring surface melt using satellite remote sensing can enhance our understanding of ice shelf stability. However, the sensors do not measure the actual physical process of surface melt, but rather observe the presence...

Strategic planning of water management at the river-basin scale requires (1) measurement and accounting of individual hydrological processes, (2) quantification of water resources, and (3) their optimal allocation. Scalable Water Balances from Earth Observations (SWEO) is an open-access parameterization enabling automated reporting of water...

With climate change being a prime source of concern around the world, air pollution is a topic that requires special attention. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to track and measure the emissions in our environment for detecting the sources and understating the climate change so as to figure out possible solutions. Despite ongoing...

LOUPE, the Lunar Observatory for Unresolved Polarimetry of the Earth, is a small, robust spectro-polarimeter for observing the Earth as an exoplanet. Detecting Earth-like planets in stellar habitable zones is one of the key challenges of modern exoplanetary science. Characterizing such planets and searching for traces of life requires the...

NASA's ICE, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) has been measuring the topography of the Earth's surface since its launch in September 2018. Equipped with a single instrument, namely, the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS), ICESat-2 is able to acquire the along track vertical profiles of its laser footprints. While...

The seasonal Chindwin river (Myanmar) forms the central artery for transportation in the region. However, the dynamic river behaviour, archaic boat equipment and limited monitoring, yearly results in large numbers of grounding ships, causing injuries and economic losses. A pilot project involving CoVadem technology was initiated in the beginning...

Landslides are destructive and recurrent natural disasters that cost annually significant social and economic losses all over the world. These events can be induced by natural factors as earthquakes and extreme rainfall, as well as by human intervention, including construction and mining. A primary resource to conduct landslides studies for...

The GRACE mission has provided unprecedented insights into mass redistribution processes in the Earth system. Following a strong call for continuation of the mass observations, the GRACE-Follow On (GRACE-FO) mission was launched in May 2018, leaving a coverage gap of ca. 1 year between GRACE and GRACE-FO. Geopotential solutions derived from data...
