Wow!! They captured difficult damages happening on the earth. However, just by watching these images, I wasn’t able to locate the damage in each image. Good that there are notes under each image.
By reading only the title, I wanted to say the following:”Watch out earth, there is someone watching you”.
This is a good start to develop a strategy to catalogue Earth observations and spot any gaps in them.
However, the problem at present is that geographical and climate data that streams in from thousands of satellites and monitoring stations is poorly coordinated by many countries and organisations that collect it. No one organisation knows how many observing systems there are, or what data they are gathering. This means we are missing a valuable opportunity to understand how different systems work at a global level.
Earth is our planet which we should keep it from any danger that could strike it, thus having an eye on earth is very useful to monitor the risky incidents happening on it especially on the areas that we couldn’t reach it!!
