Finnish Startup Launches Satellite to Monitor Climate Change

Finnish Startup Launches Satellite to Monitor Climate Change

Global
A pioneering Finnish nano satellite has now reached space equipped with the world's smallest infrared hyper-spectral camera. The photos with infrared data taken from the satellite provide new solutions for monitoring and managing the effects of climate change. The hyperspectral camera is a trailblazing innovation from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland. The Reaktor Hello World nano satellite was launched into space on 29 November 2018 by the Finnish space technology startup Reaktor Space Lab. In the past, hyper-spectral imaging - the simultaneous collection of the optical spectrum at each point in an image - was feasible only with larger, exorbitantly priced satellites. The larger satellites also came with significant restrictions: a single satellite provides new data only whe...

As has been the trend, the ambient air and noise pollution levels for Deepawali 2008 were monitored by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). The results after data analysis for Deepawali 2008 were finally what we have been trying to achieve since a long time. Findings reveal that noise levels as well as air pollution levels this year have gone down with respect to Deepawali 2007.   This could be due to the following two reasons: Bursting of lesser number of crackers. Favourable meteorological conditions like increased mixing of height and temperature, both being higher than Deepawali 2007. This monitoring was conducted at seven and nine places all over Delhi, for air and noise pollution levels respectively. Level of SO2 declined considerably at all locations as com
