LONDON: The UK government has announced that a new satellite data centre will analyze the impact climate change was having on the UK, help shape policies on reducing carbon emissions and contribute to reaching net zero targets.

The Centre for Satellite Data in Environmental Science (SENSE), is a virtual academic collaboration and was being established with funding from the Natural Environment Research Council and the UK Space Agency, Xinhua news agency reported citing the government as saying on Monday.

It involves the University of Edinburgh and the University of Leeds, and will use cutting-edge satellite technology to help combat climate change, including helping lower the risk of people being affected by flooding.

The data centre will bring together 50 of the UK’s brightest and best PhD researchers to help solve climate change, according to the government. Measurements from satellites on rising sea levels, greenhouse gases and shrinking glaciers and forests will help provide policy makers, government and industry with the data and knowledge they need to better understand the impact of climate change and make future predictions, it added.

“This new satellite data centre will give us instant images showing us the true impact of climate change and in doing so, help us develop innovative new ways of tackling it,” said Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom in a statement.

Earth observation experts from the University of Edinburgh and the University of Leeds will work with 18 businesses on pioneering work to monitor the impact of climate change. IANS
