TEMPORAL AND DYNAMIC OBSERVATIONS FROM SATELLITES

The sampling of terrestrial features or environmental phenomena by an airborne or satellite sensor is especially significant when repetitive surveys are required. Dynamic and short-lived natural events need to be detected rapidly and repeatedly for meaningful results. A series of satellites now provide a hitherto unavailable capability for detecting and mapping dynamic terrestrial features and environmental events on a global, repetitive, and temporal basis. The paper summarizes briefly some of the stellite missions and in a tabular form classifies the time-scale requirements for observing some of the dynamic events. /Author/
