From their vantage point in space, astronauts and satellites can see both the beauty and the fragility of our planet. You can also observe Earth from home and work like a real Earth scientist. Choose an Earth Observation image, describe what is visible and tell us how this relates to a climate aspect or problem.
You have three options to find an Earth Observation Image: using the EO Browser online tool; the ESA Earth Observation Image of the week gallery or the ESA astronauts’ Flickr accounts. In addition to the image, you have also to provide a short description of maximum 200 words including the location and describing what is visible in the image and what climate problem it highlights.
The chosen images can be related to:
– Atmosphere and air pollution
– Oceans and water bodies
– Vegetation and forestry
– Snow, ice and glaciers
– Natural landscapes
– Urban landscapes
All participants that submit an entry that complies with the guidelines will receive a participation certificate and their submission will be shared on the Climate Detectives @home online platform
Who can participate?
Participation is open to individuals, virtual teams of young people aged 12 – 18 years, and families.
