Sensing Planet Earth – Water and Ice
Global warming. Rising sea levels. Droughts. Flooding. The melting of the polar ice caps.
Join us, when we discover how continental water and ice masses are measured and monitored through remote sensing. Our experts give you first-hand insights how water and mass transport can be traced, and how this relates to the complex processes in the Earth‘s system.
Together with your fellow learners you will assess and evaluate statements made in relation to climate change. This will prepare you to make evidence-based decisions for a sustainable future.
