EarthCARE satellite studies clouds' climate impact for better predictions

Airbus May 15, 2024, 08:00 AM UTC

Summary: The European Space Agency's EarthCARE satellite aims to enhance understanding of clouds' impact on climate. Clouds regulate Earth's temperature by reflecting or trapping radiation. EarthCARE will provide global observations of clouds' behavior and structure, aiding climate modeling. Clouds have both cooling and warming effects, influenced by their composition and altitude. EarthCARE's data will improve climate change predictions. International cooperation and advanced satellite technology are crucial for accurate long-term climate forecasts.
