Satellite view of the drought in Kenya
Satellite view of the drought in Kenya
The situation in Kenya is serious - there has been too little rain for more than a year. With the aid of satellite data, TU Wien is measuring moisture content in the soil in order to better assess the risk of drought.

Glaciers Contribute One Third to Sea Level Rise
Glaciers Contribute One Third to Sea Level Rise
Ninety-nine percent of all of Earth's land ice is locked up in the massive Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets. However, over the period 2003 to 2009, the melting of the world's other land ice stored in glaciers contributed just as much to sea level rise as the two ice sheets combined.

Rapid ice shelf disintegration in Antarctic
Rapid ice shelf disintegration in Antarctic
For ten years ESA's Envisat satellite observed the rapid retreat of one of Antarctica's ice shelves due to climate warming. Helmut Rott, Professor at the Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics, follows this development since the start of the mission. One of the satellite's first observations following its launch on 1 March 2002 was the break-up of a main section of the Larsen B ice shelf in Antarctica - when 3200 sq km of ice disintegrated within a few days due to mechanical instabilities of the ice masses triggered by climate warming.
