Neural Network

"A neural network is a network or circuit of artificial neurons or nodes. Neural networks can be "trained" to effectively analyse data for some applications." (Haykin 1994)

Space-Based Radioglaciology: Refining Climate Models and Monitoring Ice

About 40% of the World’s population lives within 100 km of the coast (United Nations 2017).  Sea levels are on the rise around the World and the trend is accelerating every year. The UN, countless international organizations and national agencies are working hard every year to support the efforts of climate scientists to accurately model our changing climate. The role of ice in shaping the Earth’s seas is indisputable. As continental ice melts and as ice sheets break off from continental shelves and fall into the sea, more and more coastal communities are threatened.

Les Applications de la Glaciologie depuis l'Espace pour l'Amélioration des Modèles Climatiques et l'Evolution des Glaces

Environ 40 % de la population mondiale vit à moins de cent kilomètres des côtes (Nations unies, 2017).  Le niveau des mers est en hausse dans le monde entier et la tendance s'accélère chaque année. L'ONU, d'innombrables organisations internationales et des agences nationales travaillent ardemment chaque année pour soutenir les efforts des climatologues afin de modéliser avec précision notre climat changeant. Le rôle de la glace dans le modelage des mers de la Terre est indiscutable.

Monitoring runoff using Earth observation data

When rain falls on Earth, the water starts moving and flowing downhill through sewers and rivers as runoff. Runoff is extremely important to recharge surface water bodies and groundwater. Furthermore, runoff changes the landscape by action of erosion. It is an integral part of the water cycle (Earth Science Data Systems 2021).
