Global Environmental Monitoring From Space

Abstract. We are facing global environmental issues such as Global warming, Ozone depletion, Deforestation, Air pollution, Ocean pollution, Desertification, etc. Homeostasis among geosphere, atmosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere has to be maintained. In order for Global Sustainability, global environmental monitoring from space is needed. The monitoring system does work for not only global environmental monitoring, but also disaster mitigation such as Sulawesi Big Earthquake and Tsunami which was occurred on 28 September 2018. Other than Environmental Monitoring from Space, Modeling and simulation, Big data analysis, Artificial intelligence are also needed.

Keywords: global warming, ozone depletion, deforestation, air pollution, ocean pollution, desertification
