What is Earth Observation Satellite?
An Earth observation satellite or Earth remote sensing satellite is a satellite used or designed for Earth observation (EO) from orbit, used for such as environmental monitoring, meteorology, cartography and others. Satellites have given us the first large-scale maps of weather patterns, vegetation health, atmospheric pollutants, soil moisture and rock types, among others.
A weather satellite is a type of satellite that is primarily used to monitor the weather and climate of the Earth, from short-term weather predictions to long-term global climate monitoring, today, Earth observation satellites are at the forefront of monitoring the planet.
Other environmental satellites can assist environmental monitoring by detecting changes in the Earth’s vegetation, atmospheric trace gas content, sea state, ocean color, and ice fields
Terrain can be mapped from space with the use of satellites, not surprisingly, then, some of the earliest scientific advances based on satellite observations came in the field of geology, where mineral and energy exploration, waste disposal and tectonic modeling all took advantage of the new data sources.
