Is change the new normal? Every year seems to be the next warmest year. Those of us looking back at our planet from space are seeing these changes across our planet in near real-time through the eyes of satellites. But behind those pixels are real human stories of catastrophe and suffering. So, with all our constellations of satellites, massive computing power and new generative AI algorithms, can we do anything more than simply report what happened? What does the future hold for geospatial t...

At the Earth Observation for the Environment Laboratory in The University of Calgary, we have been conducting research in developing remote sensing-based forecasting system for forest fire danger conditions since 2009. In the scope of this presentation, the chronology of such developments at daily, 4-day, and 8-day time scales will be discussed. We believe that these would be critical for managing forest fire regimes in Canada and elsewhere in the world.

Addressing the escalating levels of methane in the Earth's atmosphere is among the most urgent issues humanity faces. Methane ranks as one of the most potent greenhouse gases (GHGs), trapping over 25 times more heat than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period; thus, significantly reducing methane emissions will make a substantial impact in the fight against climate change.One of the most impactful methods for mitigating methane emissions involves the prompt detection and repair of metha...
