    1. Second One Planet Summit in New York- Space Climate Observatory key to tackling climate change

      Publishing date:

      September 27, 2018

      On the initiative of President Emmanuel Macron, the second One Planet Summit was held in New York on Wednesday 26 September. On this occasion, CNES President Jean-Yves Le Gall presented a status report on the Space Climate Observatory (SCO). Created in December last year at the first edition of this event where CNES brought together the world’s space agencies to step up their cooperation on tackling climate change, the SCO really moved into higher gear last June by highlighting the vital role that satellites have to play in this effort. In New York, an interactive terminal developed by CNES gave Summit participants an overview of a range of applications where satellites are making a crucial contribution.

    5. Glacier melting: untangling local from global

      Publishing date:

      May 12, 2021

      An international team led by the LEGOS space geophysics and oceanography research laboratory has measured the evolution of all the world’s glaciers over 20 years. On average, they are losing 267 billion tonnes in ice mass a year, a cumulative loss of 4% in just 20 years. The authors confirm this phenomenon is accelerating globally as temperatures rise and explains certain slowdowns observed locally.
