The European Space Agency’s new i-Book shows how satellites contribute to our knowledge about Earth, including how they can provide information on remote areas with low human influence, such as deserts and rainforests, without disturbing local environments.

The wonders and glory of our planet are just a few clicks away. The European Space Agency’s first i-Book underscores the importance of satellites and reveals Earth from a new perspective.

Earth from Space: The Living Beauty provides a hands-on experience of how Earth works and how satellites contribute to this knowledge. The digital publication has more than 100 pages with interactive maps, stunning image galleries and animations that encourage you to discover the various Earth processes.

Earth’s interior, oceans, atmosphere, cryosphere and land are outlined through dedicated chapters. Learn how satellites map earthquakes, study ocean salinity with an interactive 3-D globe, watch the ash plume from the Eyjafjallajökull volcano spread over northern Europe, flip through an image gallery of picturesque glaciers or find out how fast our forests are disappearing.
