    Title

    Satellite Applications for Sustainability and Climate

    Description

    Spaceflight represents one of humanity’s greatest tools to solve some of our most pressing global challenges related to sustainability and climate. Our shared experience with addressing the Ozone depletion, deforestation, and other challenges improved through space-derived solutions demonstrate the power of orbiting platforms to collect data, provide unique observational perspectives, and advance our understanding of many existential problems. Each of the seventeen (17) UN Sustainable development goals have key dimensions in which satellite applications – coupled with innovation to be found throughout the world – can help us make strides in improving the sustainability of life on Earth and combat climate change. In keeping with this year’s IAC 2024 theme of “Responsible Space for Sustainability,” this session solicits papers pertinent to integrated satellite applications that directly address any of the seventeen UN Sustainable Development goals, work successfully to help mitigate or reverse effects of climate change, or improve other dimensions of sustainability in areas such as agriculture, water quality, air quality, space domain awareness and orbital debris, transportation, maritime, and natural resource management.
