Looking to the future of Earth observation
13 September 2013
The Living Planet Symposium has come to a close in Edinburgh, and a week of talking about past, present and future satellite missions, as well as the scientific challenges facing us, has prepared Earth observation for a new chapter.
Over 300 scientists attended two special sessions organised to discuss ESA's plans to update the scientific challenges of the Living Planet Programme.
The scientific challenges are the foundation of ESA's science strategy for Earth observation for the coming years. The current strategy, called 'The Changing Earth', was formulated in 2006 and significant progress has been made since then, thanks to the achievements of ESA's Earth Explorer missions.
