Climate Change

Climate change is a global phenomenon with significant impacts on the environment, ecosystems, and society. Remote sensing techniques, like thermal imagery, provide a valuable tool for monitoring and understanding these changes. By utilizing remote sensing data, we can observe changes in land surface temperature, vegetation cover, sea level, and other critical indicators of climate change. This helps identify areas at risk of environmental degradation and inform management strategies to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Remote sensing provides a comprehensive view of climate change patterns at different spatial and temporal scales.

Urban Heat Island Effect

Urban heat island (UHI) effect occurs when urban areas experience higher temperatures due to human activities. This effect has significant impacts on human health, energy consumption, and the environment. Remote sensing techniques can provide a valuable tool for monitoring and analyzing the UHI effect. Satellite imagery and remote sensing data can observe and map the spatial distribution of temperature across urban areas and identify areas at risk of high temperatures. The study of climate change focusing on the UHI effect is essential for promoting sustainable urban development and improving the quality of life for urban dwellers.
