    CLIMATE CHANGE AS A POLITICAL PROCESS Eija-Riitta Korhola ACADEMIC DISSERTATION To be presented for public examination with the permission of the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences of the University of Helsinki in Main Building (Fabianinkatu 33), Small Hall, on 15 November, at 12 o’clock noon. Helsinki informs decision-making for a knowledge society and improved quality of life. SAEON’s scientific design is adaptively refined to be responsive to emerging environmental issues and corresponds largely with the societal benefit areas of the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO). SAEON The Woods Information. initiative is part of the Work Programme2 of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), fostering open and collaborative production and use of EO data in support of global decision making. Other initiatives are described in the case studies that are given below.   In this session, we will hear from the Foundation, the Group on Earth Observation and Digital Earth Africa on ways Earth observations and AWS cloud technology are supporting governments, NGOs, businesses, and individuals to make more informed decisions and manage challenges such as climate change, soil and coastal erosion.

This book highlights a broad range of innovative uses of Earth Observation technology to support environmental management, decision making, crisis management and climate policies. It uses advanced concepts of multi-sensor image integration, multi-temporal analysis and synergies between data and models.

Earth observations provide the foundation for critical scientific advances and environmental data products derived from these observations are used in resource management and for an extraordinary range of societal applications including weather forecasts, climate projections, sea level change, water management, disease early warning.
