Satellites and World Heritage sites,
partners to understand climate change
The glaciers of Patagonia are melting,
as are those of the Everest, the highest mountain on Earth.
Desertification is gaining ground in Africa, and the resulting
sand storms are burying and damaging the great mosques in
Timbuktu, the Giza pyramids and many other sites.
The exhibition shows a wide variety
of climate change effects on World Heritage sites and explains
the inputs provided by space technologies to understand the
causes and effects of climate change on these sites.
