Spacefiles: Orbit - Monitoring Earth From Space
Orbit - Monitoring Earth From Space
Season 1  |  Episode 17  |  SBS2  |  June 5, 2010

Monitoring Earth from space. A constellation of artificial satellites keep an eye on our planet. They help predict our weather and the threat of tornadoes, floods and drought. Telecommunications depend on satellites. Shipping and road traffic navigate by satellite. Spies in the sky monitor farm crops, pests, forest fires, volcanoes and oil slicks. And with growing importance, satellites watch for climate change, melting icecaps, drying-up lakes and holes in the ozone layer.
