    1. Space hydrology: brace yoursleves, data is coming

      Publishing date:

      May 29, 2017

      An international research team just published the very first database mapping our planet’s humid areas and their evolution over time, from 1993 to 2007, with a 90 m resolution. Data will be extended to cover up to 2017 and prepare for the enormous amount of data from the revolutionary SWOT hydrology satellite.

    12. DORIS, 30 years of continuous operations at the heart of the of altimetry mission performance for oceanography and geodetic applications

      Publishing date:

      February 27, 2020

      The DORIS system (Doppler Orbitography and Radio positioning Integrated by Satellite) was designed and developed in the early 1980s by CNES, IGN and GRGS to determine satellite positions with high accuracy to support altimetry missions dedicated to ocean monitoring.

    14. CNES-IRD cooperation Space supporting development in Southern Nations

      Publishing date:

      October 18, 2019

      Friday 18 October, CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall and Jean-Paul Moatti, Chairman & CEO of IRD, the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development, signed a framework cooperation agreement at the agency’s Toulouse Space Centre on space supporting the development of Southern Nations. The agreement will run for five years (2019-2024) and is tacitly renewable. The two partners have been working together under two other agreements since 2009 and now wish to continue seeking synergies between their missions and pooling expertise in their respective domains of excellence.

    15. Philippines- La mégapole du Grand Manille entre aléas, risques, urbanisation et aménagement durable

      Publishing date:

      July 25, 2019

      L’agglomération de Manille s’est développée entre la baie de Manille, une des indentations majeures de la côte Ouest de Luçon, la plus grande des îles philippines, et le lac Laguna de Bay. Comme d’autres grandes agglomérations asiatiques (Bangkok, Calcutta, Ho Chi Minh Ville, Jakarta, Shanghai, Tokyo), Manille est très exposée aux risques hydrauliques du fait de sa position dans une région de climat tropical humide de mousson, aggravé ici par des typhons, et en position littorale et deltaïque sujette à la montée du niveau des mers. Elle est aussi, comme Naples, Seattle ou Tokyo, directement menacée par des volcans actifs et le potentiel de séismes et tsunamis.

    17. Satellite observations reveal secrets of dry tropical forest greening

      Publishing date:

      August 13, 2018

      In dry tropical forests, vegetation takes up water at the end of the wet season and stores it during the driest season of the year. This large amount of stored water enables trees to flush new leaves about one month before the next rainy season. This surprising phenomenon has been revealed for the first time using satellite observations, mainly in the African region of Miombo (around four times the surface area of France), in a study coordinated by the University of Copenhagen and INRA in collaboration with the CEA, CNRS, CNES and Bordeaux Science Agro . These findings, published on 13 August 2018 in Nature Ecology and Evolution, will help researchers improve current Earth system models (which do not fully account for plant hydraulic mechanisms) and future climate change and water cycle projections in these regions of the world.
