In this age of climate change, it has become critical that we increase our knowledge of the climate systems in order to improve weather, climate and hydrologic predictions. Using sensing technology, scientists are able to measure things such as the water in the sky for the entire globe. This video also introduces CLOUD SAT, the first space born cloud radar, and a way of looking at the Earth's atmosphere to see through clouds covering the Earth. This video was recorded at the IEEE 2006 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium and includes interviews with professional scientists and engineers that explain further into the developments of Remote Sensing Technology.
