Case studies

Cape Horn
How much wind appears around Cape Horn? How can satellite radar images be used for the calculation of ocean sea surface winds? Make your own weather forecasting for the ship while the expedition is in the stormy seas.

Galathea 3 in Copenhagen
Take a close look at Copenhagen seen from many different satellite images, image types that Satellite Eye for Galathea 3 will publish along the cruise. Introduction to the different satellite image types and the software LEOWorks for image analysis is given.

Ghana/Accra
In Ghana and in many other parts of the world, land development takes place rapidly to meet increasing urban population growth, however, often at a pace beyond the capacity of the authorities and their ability to manage the process. In this case study we will study the overall change in the Accra area between 1985 and 2000.

Ocean features and oil spills
Learn about radar images from the Envisat satellite and how they can monitor the oceans. Oil spills can be detected!

Radar detects sea ice and icebergs
Learn about radar images from the Envisat satellite and how they can be used to navigate in water filled with sea ice!

Radar on cities and land
Learn about radar images from the Envisat satellite and how they can be used to analyze changes over time.

Sea ice around Greenland
Analyse the sea ice distribution from satellite radar images. What does it mean for shipping? Where does the sea ice come from? What effect does global warming have on sea ice? What are the consequences for Greenland?

Senegal
The living conditions in Senegal is very dependent on the yearly precipitation. This case study shows how observations from space can be used to analyze the yearly changes together with changes over the years from 1981 to 2000. Is the daily lives and livelihood of people improving in Senegal? Is the state of the environment deteriorating and causing what is known as desertification?

Wind power: Cape Verde
The topic wind power is the focus here with lots of satellite images together with theory about effect of wind mills and their optimal location. Study comparisons between Cap Verde and Denmark.
