The head of the Russian space startup Oleg Mansurov said that weather data is being tracked
More satellites monitor the fields:they are engaged in the analysis of the state of crops according to the data received. The most popular among farmers is the NDVI index, which is an indicator of the amount of photosynthetically active biomass in the field. It can only be measured from a satellite.
Also, according to information from satellites, researchersmonitor air quality. This data helps fight pollution sources that release nitrogen dioxide, smog, formaldehyde and aerosols into the atmosphere. Instruments sent into space as part of satellites can also track the path of pollution, determining the places of their appearance.
And, most importantly, without data from space, most modern maps would work worse - the information from them would be less accurate and, most likely, incomplete.
All the listed services and services appearedthanks to the development of private space business, which is also in Russia.
