This satellite☝️🛰 is set to transform the way we forecast the weather around the world – and for the first time give scientists up-to-date maps of global wind speeds.
The European Space Agency is this week set to launch the first satellite to measure wind speeds across the entire planet. Aeolus, named after the keeper of the winds in Greek mythology, is expected to provide comprehensive maps of the Earth’s wind that will help predict the world’s weather more accurately.
The €500m British-built satellite will house a sophisticated laser system called Aladin, designed to provide vertical profiles of wind speeds from the Earth’s surface up to the stratosphere at an altitude of 30km.
Currently wind information is gathered from weather balloons and tracking the ascent and descent of aeroplanes. Neither of these methods can provide the type of global image possible from satellite-based technologies.
