In October, the climate will be launched satellite, intended to help forecasters predict extreme weather conditions and monitor climate change. First satellite will measure both short-term and long-term weather and climate change.
Necessary to launch such a satellite is dictated by millions of losses and damages suffered by the U.S. in 2011 as a result of natural disasters. The project is scheduled for a period of 5 years, and its cost will be $ 1.5 billion.
Satellite launch will be made October 27, 2011 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. On board are five special instrumentation that will record temperature changes in different layers of the atmosphere, to reflect the impact of climate change on the oceans and land.
