Climate Science

Understanding our planet through aurora

Scientists at the University of Calgary in Canada are spearheading aurora studies, that will help us model and predict space weather and understand the Earth’s magnetosphere.

This is how climate change will affect your community

Researchers at the University of Prince Edward Island in Canada have created a tool that’s able to visualize the changes about to take place at local communities.

Protecting the planet and its natural biodiversity

Brazil is a veritable treasure chest for research and development in biodiversity, climate, natural sciences and the environment. The nature of this type of research is driven by collaboration and high bandwidth network technologies.

Predicting climate change impacts in Georgia

Natural disasters have intensified in recent years, causing substantial damage to infrastructure, farmland and people’s lives, with research more critical than ever to improving disaster preparedness.

Connecting students to Saildrone and Berkeley Lab

Thanks to a new agreement between CENIC and the City of Alameda in Northern California, students will get to work with first-of-its-kind data captured from autonomous ocean vehicles studying everything from marine wildlife to climate models.

Helping to bring vital software back on line in aftermath of Hurricane Michael

When Hurricane Michael came ashore at Mexico Beach, Florida on October 10, 2018, it knocked the Traffic and Criminal Software, a vital piece of law enforcement software, offline.

Citizen science: collaboration for water quality

Harnessing the power of citizen science gives scientists the opportunity to gather more data than they ever could alone.

GPS Network Navigates Climate and Seismic Disaster Prevention

TLALOC-Net is a network of GPS and meteorological stations used to study the atmospheric and solid earth processes, allowing better analysis of the Mexican subduction zone.

Pinpointing air pollution from space

For the first time, air pollution from individual cities and built-up areas can be detected from space. The European Sentinel-5 Precursor Earth observation satellite sends ultra precise measurement data to ground stations in Norway and Canada.

Monitoring dust storms to give asthma sufferers a breather

Frequent in arid regions, dust storms can have devastating effects. Powered by R&E connectivity, monitoring and simulations equip scientists to better predict them and assist authorities in issuing alerts to help people, particularly asthma sufferers, take protective action.

System collects data to minimize climate change impact on the Amazon

The Amazon region is one of the ecosystems on the planet most affected by global climate change. The reason is variations in the Ecuador line cause events like floods, droughts and storms that directly affect the environment and the local population.

The rainmaker – seeding particles in clouds

Not many people could be described as a rainmaker quite as literally as Hannele Korhonen. Korhonen, a research professor at the Finnish Meteorological Institute, is heading a project that aims to improve artificial rainmaking in the United Arab Emirates.
