  • XtremQuality, space technology for detecting water quality

    In order to take a comprehensive and effective approach to water, we need to consider both the quantity and quality of the resources available. As only the main reservoirs are instrumented for this purpose, the XtremQuality project is developing a method for satellite monitoring of the thousands of small bodies of water in France for which no information is available.

  • SCO Portfolio: the 2024 edition is here!

    To all SCO projects and team spirit aficionados, the new SCO Portfolio is now available. It compiles all the projects accredited from 2020 to 2023 and has a new section: services that are operational and available! Download or order.

  • GreenSpace: choose carefully trees species

    Dedicated to (re)greening cities to reduce urban heat islands and urban pollution, the GreenSpace project offers two major innovations. Welcome behind the scenes of this particularly instructive project on the close links between global warming and air pollution.

  • "Coping with natural disasters", soon the 12th SCO France Quarterly Meeting

    Fires, cyclones, mud, rain, snow, wind... Whatever their form, nature's wrath is intensifying. On Thursday 14 March 2023, tune in to the twelfth "SCO France Quarterly Meeting" to find out about three SCOlutions using satellite data to protect against destructive phenomena.

  • 10th SCO France meeting

    Emblematic of the satellite data at the heart of the SCO's activities, the Toulouse Space Centre hosted the 10th Committee meeting of the SCO France on 24 January 2024. After a morning of exchanges, the members present were able to visit three major space programmes, a remarkable opportunity to get a close-up view of uncommon activities.

  • Littosat: 2 demonstrators online

    How can we assess the impact of climate change and human activities on coastal habitats? And how can we assess public policies aimed at protecting biodiversity in these areas? With the Littosat dashboards, the two demonstrators of which are already online.

  • WACA-VAR : two workshops and a publication

    While all coastlines suffer from rising sea levels and coastal erosion, some are under particular threat, such as the West African coast, which is the focus of the WACA-VAR project. The team is particularly active, publishing scientific papers based on satellite data and organizing conferences.

  • GeoHaTACC or satellite optical data to detect geo-hydrological hazards

    The pioneering GeoHaTACC project is proving that it is possible to use optical remote sensing time series to automatically detect geo-hydrological hazards (landslides, sediment flooding) over very large areas, with a particular focus on areas where there is a lack of information. Find out more about the first 12 months of work.

  • Chove-Chuva shows how territorial dynamics are changing

    After 24 months of development, the Chove-Chuva application is up and running and freely available. A genuine dashboard for monitoring territorial dynamics in Mato-Grosso, it has already won over its local users, while its design has laid down some particularly stimulating technical building blocks for the project's pilots.

  • The efforts made in 2023 promise a dynamic 2024!

    Climate change is happening fast, but so is the SCO. With the entry into force of the founding Charter in September 2022, the SCO has taken concrete steps to move up a gear, following the example of SCO France, the initiative's pilot fish. In fact, the soil is ideal for 2024, which is already shaping up to be a very busy year.
