On the use of Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites for studying fast-evolving atmospheric and climate
Posted on December 13, 2016 Most advanced remote sensing instruments are placed on Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites. Since they revisit a specific location on Earth anywhere between 2 and 12 hours, it is difficult to use LEO satellites to monitor or study fast-evolving phenomenon such as severe storms. Geostationary satellites (GEO) are better suited for capturing these fast processes but lack advanced instruments.
