Thanks for the feedback!
Geographers rely on satellites to gather data because it is the easiest method. In the past, they would have had to traverse the earth to map all of it.
You get images from a satellite using a frequency band. The best way to access satellite images is with Google maps. However, if you want your own, you will need to have at …least $500 USD, and for larger areas up to $14,000. Look at Digital Globe for these.
They convert infrared radiation into electrical signals which is then converted into visible light.
Sensors and optical viewing devices take in the information and the on-board computers organize the data to be sent down to us through the transmitter.
Geography has changed to reflect better technology of our time. and because it is easyer than to go up in space in a rocket to send up a satelite
How do meteorologists combine data from weather radar and weather satellites to gather information about the atmosphere?
they say yo homie let me check it
Ulysses launched in 1990 is the only satellite that travels in an out-of-the-ecliptic orbit over both the sun's north and south poles every 6.2 years.
These days they can gather lots of different data in the atmosphere. There can take profiles of the temperature, humidity, optical thickness of the atmosphere...they can look …at clouds, look inside them, measure every type of particle size in clouds and in the air, they can measure precipitation and precipitation rates, wind direction and speed....they're far from perfect, but they can measure most variables in the atmosphere and ocean surface.
Yes, satellite images based on data obtained by land sat satellites.
