Explore how researchers are using satellites to tackle climate change


This event is part of a series of lightning lectures for the Royal Society’s 2021 Summer Science digital showcase.

Tracking and tracing the sources, sinks and stores of carbon on Earth is crucial in our ongoing fight against climate change. Being able to do this is challenging but with more data from satellites all across the globe, we are now able to do this with increasing accuracy and ease.  

Join Paul Palmer, Mat Disney and Gemma Kulk as they take you on a journey through the land, air and sea to explore how satellites are used at the cutting edge of climate science. 


  • Professor Mat Disney, Professor of Remote Sensing, University College London
  • Dr Gemma Kulk, Researcher, Plymouth Marine Laboratory
  • Professor Paul Palmer, Professor of Quantitative Earth Observation, University of Edinburgh
