They say a picture speaks a thousand words, but how can satellite imagery help answer questions of the past and future? Delve into the mysteries of Mars' evolution, as remote sensing unveils its marvellous secrets. Learn how cutting-edge technology is helping us to understand the future of island nations in the face of climate change and what crucial mitigations are necessary.

It's Island Time! Unravelling Climate Change with Satellites

Myriam Prasow-Émond (PhD researcher at Imperial College London, Department of Earth Science and Engineering)
Dive into the world of small island nations which, despite contributing only 0.2% of global greenhouse gas emissions, are among the first victims of the adverse effects of climate change. Discover how I use satellite images and various data science tools to study and monitor their evolution. From rising sea levels putting their land at risk of flooding or disappearing to the impacts of human activities, we will explore why and how coastlines are changing. I'll show you how I'm using data collected over time to determine how we can help these fragile ecosystems combat climate change.

Uncovering ancient environments on Mars

Amelie Roberts (PhD researcher at Imperial College London, Department of Earth Science and Engineering.)
I will offer insights into the workings of rover missions from a geological standpoint. Using my research as a case study, I will demonstrate how rovers can utilize both close-up images of the bedrock beneath their wheels and larger-scale structures observed in hills to reconstruct ancient environments and assess past habitability. Specifically, I will illustrate how Marker Band Valley in Gale crater potentially preserves evidence of sustained near-surface water, intense winds, and a habitable environment.
