How satellites monitor disasters?

In early 2017, dozens of people were dead in El Niño flooding, but the circumstances were somewhat different.

“In spite of the fact that we were in a better circumstance, we had an extra issue,” remembers José Pasapera, a specialized executive CONIDA. “We had the equipment yet not preparing capacities; there were not HR accessible nor a method manage.”

Satellites are progressively being utilized to screen and oversee floods, earthquakes, fires, and even volcanic emissions, and the limit is being sloped up to utilize the innovation furthering its full potential benefit

Space-based cooperation

Argentina is ready to introduce SAOCOM 1B (Argentine Microwaves Observation Satellite) to finish the ‘star grouping’ of two Earth observation satellites planned and made in the country. The 1st SAOCOM 1A Satellite has been in polar circle since 2016. The lanching date was arrange for March 30 in the United States, however has been postponed due to coronavirus travel limitations.

Laura Frulla, Earth perception director and head specialist at SAOCOM, said the introduction of the 2nd satellite would finish the Italian Argentinean system for crises (SIASGE). “The two SAOCOMs will join four Cosmo SkyMed satellites created by the Italian Space Agency to get the master plan,”

The six satellites cooperating can perform seismic peril investigation, disaster observing and agricultural mapping.

Harnessing the power of data

A country without their own satellite advancement, they can get to pictures produced by different countries. This is the situation in Colombia, as Carlos Andrés Franco Prieto, facilitator of an exploration and development bunch in Geographic Institute Agustín Codazzi, said:  “We utilize European Space Agency pictures, with a 10-meter resolution” he also said that.

“It isn’t ideal and can snap a photo in a similar spot just at regular intervals, yet they are free for us. Clearly, when a disaster is going on, not having a consistent progression of [images] is a real issue.”

He says Colombia is thinking to launch its own satellite. “The money-saving advantage is acceptable, presently it isn’t as costly as it used to be. Numerous nations like Colombia regarding GDP as of now have it, so we can join that club,”  Prieto says.  Also, Mexico’s Earth monitoring framework is controlled for the most part by United States-possessed satellites, for example, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the space office NASA.
