Images of Research: Progress through partnership

Charting change for rapid response

Category: Collaboration for impact

A satellite image of the Solway Firth

The world around us is in constant flux. Satellite images – such as those used to generate this image of shifting sands in the Solway Firth – reveal changes in the environment. We are developing tools to automatically detect and categorise landscape changes, such as after a natural disaster. Working with satellite manoeuvre and constellation experts, we aim to enable a more rapid and accurate emergency response that could ultimately save lives.
