NASA Launches Ocean Level Tracking Satellite Today
Thirty years of NASA satellite observations of sea levels show that water levels are rising and the land is receding. As a result, coastal areas are becoming a place of close observation, as the risk of flooding, hurricanes, and threats to shipping and industrial fishing increases. The accuracy of observations will be ensured by the latest satellites Sentinel-6 and Sentinel-6B. The first should be launched today and the second in five years.
