"If you can't measure it, you can't manage it", said María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, President of the United Nations General Assembly at the COP 24 in Katowice Poland, summing up how crucial satellites are for measuring climate change.

Satellite measurements of Earth's temperature, greenhouse gas emissions, sea levels, atmospheric gases, dwindling ice and forest cover etc, are essential for improving the understanding of Climate change and predicting future of the Earth.
