Space4Climate

Space4Climate is a public-private-academic partnership working to raise the profile of, and support, the UK’s world-leading climate community in delivering, sustaining and making use of trusted climate information from space.  The group’s activities enable a seamless supply chain of climate data from space assets, help identify climate services user requirements and facilitate climate services development for global economic and societal benefit.

Space4Climate is hosted by group member the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO), a distributed NERC centre of over 100 scientists from UK universities and research organisations. NCEO provides the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with national capability in Earth observation science – monitoring the health of our planet through satellite instruments and more – with world-class capability in interpreting these data.

We bring this capability to the London Climate Change Partnership and constantly look for ways in which, where appropriate, climate satellite data can help inform:

  • emissions detection and monitoring
  • action to identify, better cope with and prevent detrimental impacts London’s changing climate is having, and might in the future have, on people, assets, infrastructure and business operations.
