It might look like something you’d find on Earth, but this piece of technology has a serious job to do: track global sea level rise with unprecedented accuracy. It’s #SeeingTheSeas mission will:

  • Provide information that will help researchers understand how climate change is reshaping Earth’s coastlines – and how fast this is happenin.
  • Help researchers better understand how Earth’s climate is changing by expanding the global atmospheric temperature data record
  • Help to improve weather forecasts by providing meteorologists information on atmospheric temperature and humidity.
