ESA Earth From Space  Earth Observation at the @europeanspaceagency ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ›ฐ

In case you missed it this week we saw Earth through the eyes of the Meteosat satellite, flew over Malaspina glacier, and kept an eye on Kilauea volcano... Are you ready for another week of Earth Observation? Where should we go next?

Welcome to the European Space Port!
Can you spot the place from where we wil launch Aeolus wind satellite this summer?
The Copernicus Sentinel-2A satellite takes us over Kourou in French Guiana, with the main town of the same name visible in the lower right.The launch site at Kourou lies just over 500 km north of the equator and often sits under clouds.

A picture of Earth taken by Meteosat in water vapour channel back in 2002... truly a pale blue dot! Meteosat satellites had a geostationary orbit at 0 degrees longitude which has given them an unprecedented view of the weather over Europe, Africa and the eastern Atlantic.

An alien-like, swirling eye of an algae storm! It looks like a portal to another dimension is about to open... but in reality it's the eye of an algal bloom.
Cyanobacteria have qualities similar to algae and thrive on phosphorus in the water. High water temperature and sunny, calm weather often lead to particularly large blooms that pose problems to the ecosystem and, therefore, aquaculture and tourism.

Happy Towel Day, inhabitants of Sol III๐ŸŒ! Do you think @copernicus_eu Sentinel satellites know they are orbinting a giant supercomputer dedicated to find the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything?
This image of a 1977 Earth was the first one taken by the Meteosat-1 satellite.... pretty cool right? ๐Ÿ˜

Kilauea lava channels are pretty clear in this Sentinel-2B image of the Hawaiian volcano from 23 May.
This enhanced true colour image was obtained combining information fromย  true colour bands 4-3-2 & bands 12-11. Optical images from the Sentinel-2 satellite and interferogram produced with Sentinel-1 data are helping assess the situation in Hawaii.

The perfectly cone-shaped Mount Mayon is one of the most active volcanoes in the world.
This image was captured on 16 January 2018 and while satellite radar isnโ€™t typically used to detect hot lava flows, the way it has been processed reveals a pink line running down the southeast flank of the volcano.

Let's take a trip down memory lane with this composite view of our home as observed from geostationary orbit by @europeanspaceagency's Meteosat 3 & 4 weather satellites! (ESA/Eumetsat, CC BY-SA 3.0 IGO)

A beautiful false-colour satellite capture of the Malaspina glacier in Alaska!
It 's a piedmont glacier โ€“ meaning that ice flows down a steep valley and spills out onto a relatively flat plain - and the largest of its kind, with an area of about 3900 sq km!
Satellite data show that the elevation of Malaspina has dropped over the past decades, and this ice loss has made a significant contribution to sea-level rise.

Time to prove your earth observation skills!
The image on the left is an aerial view of the beautiful Siberian Putorana Plateau: which one between the second and the third image (on the right) is a satellite view of that landscape?ย

The Zambezi River Delta is an example of a healthy ecosystem ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฌ BUT worldwide biological diversity is declining. Satellites cannot directly measure #biodiversity but they can monitor changes to the species' ecosystems: it is estimated that between 100 and 150 species disappear every day.
