WASHINGTON, November 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — NASA to Participate in the 27th United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP27) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egyptwho starts Sunday November 6and crosses Friday November 18. The COP27 The summit brings together countries from around the world to increase ambition by implementing existing goals and strengthening commitments to solutions that fight climate change.
The agency’s view from space provides critical information to advance understanding of our changing planet, including the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions, the effects of global warming, including the decline of arctic sea ice, rising sea levels, more severe forest fires and changing animal migration patterns.
“NASA has a unique role in the global effort to continue to understand the impacts of climate change and to address and mitigate those impacts,” the NASA Administrator said. Bill Nelson. “Beyond our space-based Earth observation satellites, instruments and research that provide unparalleled understanding of our planet, we are committed to working with our international partners to provide free and open data to the NASA is excited to be part of the discussion at COP27 to help answer the most pressing questions in the fight against climate change.”
Throughout the conference, NASA staff and scientists will speak at several events and make presentations at the NASA Hyperwall, an interactive visual display of NASA images and data. Staff present will include:
Catherine CalvinNASA Chief Scientist and Senior Climate Advisor
Susie Perez QuinnNASA chief of staff
Tahani Bitterprogram director, NASA Earth Sciences Division
Laura LorenzoniProgram Scientist, Ocean Biology and Biochemistry, NASA Earth Sciences Division
Mike FalkowskiProgram Scientist, Earth Ecology, NASA Earth Science Division
To inquire about the possibility of interviewing one or more of these staff members, media should contact Tylar Green at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NASA Hyperwall will be the main attraction of the US Center. NASA scientists will give presentations twice a day, showing how NASA’s global leadership in climate science and research helps model and predict ocean health, heat waves, wildfires, hurricanes, floods and droughts. The full list of NASA presentations at the conference is available on line.
Climate adaptation and mitigation efforts cannot succeed without sound climate observations and research. NASA’s fleet of satellites and instruments observes the evolution of the planet and measures key climate indicators, such as sea level rise, precipitation intensity and greenhouse gases in the world. ‘atmosphere.
NASA is currently working to launch the next generation of Earth observation satellites – the Earth System Observatory, which will provide a 3D global view of the Earth to help us better understand what changes to our planet mean for humanity. NASA is also designing a Earth Information Centerthat will allow people to see how our planet is changing and provide easy-to-use information and resources that will help decision makers mitigate, adapt and respond to climate change.
