In order to protect our planet, we must first understand how it works.
How does pollution impact global weather and climate? How has the planet changed in the past 40 years? How healthy is the Earth’s ozone layer?
Ball Aerospace’s reliable and innovative remote sensing technologies are helping answer critical questions like these every day by providing scientists, policy makers and stakeholders the information they need to understand the current state of and track long-term changes in our air, land mass and oceans.
“Earth science data is essential to helping us manage our natural resources and avoid and respond to natural disasters,” said Paula Wamsley, Earth science business development lead for Ball. “Oftentimes, satellites are the only method we have to make the global measurements we need to understand our world.”
Ball’s instruments and spacecraft collect data on all aspects of Earth science, from oceans to ice and from ozone to weather. Be it pioneering discoveries or continuing long-term science records, Ball is dedicated to moving Earth science forward.
