Earth Observation provides a unique perspective of our planet and, especially when combined with data from in situ sensors and models, are a powerful tool for observing and understanding our environment. Addressing directly key challenges in the NERC Strategy, EO has a central role to play in understanding the Earth system as a whole; for example EO satellites overcome the difficulty of obtaining accurate, continuous, simultaneous measurements of the Earth's atmosphere, oceans, ice sheets, land surface and interior and they are often the only way to highlight gradual change on a global scale.
