Space‐Applications in Climate Change and Green Systems: The Need for International Cooperation, Published 2010, 66 pages. The report was presented at the historic Summit of 30 Heads of Space Agencies on November 17, 2010 in Washington DC, US. Over the past half‐century, space systems have made crucial contributions to the understanding of climate change. The future activities make significant contributions to monitoring both the causes and the consequences of Climate Change, as well as to mitigating its effects. This report of the International Academy of Astronautics addresses these potential contributions, examining three critically important themes: observing Earth from space, leveraging the integration of space and ground systems, and enabling novel green systems and technologies. The report finds that there is already significant international cooperation but that still more can be done and concludes by presenting the recommendations of the Academy to the global space community for action in each thematic area, including crosscutting actions for enhanced international cooperation both among the members of the space community, and with organizations external to it. 10€ for a pdf format version. €10.00 (electronic version).
