NAS Report Supports Satellite-Based Observations

SATELLITE OBSERVATIONS OF EXTREME WEATHER EVENTS

"Earth observations from space benefit society in numerous ways,
but perhaps the most obvious comes from our rapidly improving
ability to forecast the weather and the paths and intensity of major
storms. The global observations of atmospheric properties enabled
by satellite-based instruments have proved to be a key in this regard,
because land-, aircraft-, and balloon-based measurements
have limited coverage, especially over the oceans."
