  1. Hurricane Irma in the Eastern Caribbean: CNES activates Pleiades satellites to coordinate assistance to affected populations

    Date de publication:

    7 Septembre 2017

    Hurricane Irma has been ripping through the Eastern Caribbean since Tuesday 5 September. Classed as a Category 5, it has so far hit Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Anguilla and Puerto Rico with, as we all know, terrible cost to human life and property. It is now heading towards the United States. In order to place all satellite facilities at the disposal of rescue services and help in the geopositioning and mapping of affected zones, the Space and Major Disasters International Charter—co-founded by CNES and ESA in 2000—has been activated several times in order to coordinate assistance to local populations.

  2. Hurricane Matthew hits Haiti- CNES activates Pleiades satellites to help organize relief effort

    Date de publication:

    7 Octobre 2016

    At the end of September, Hurricane Matthew swept through Martinique and Guadeloupe. The category 4 hurricane then turned towards western Haiti on Monday 3 October, with devastating effect, before pursuing its path to the United States. To task satellites to help locate and map areas hit by the hurricane, the International Charter on Space and Major Disasters, cofounded by CNES and ESA in 2002, was activated on several occasions to support emergency relief teams on the ground.

  3. Parasol paints a striking picture of Hurricane Dean

    Date de publication:

    26 Décembre 2006

    The first satellite image of Dean on 16 August in natural colour gives a good idea of the hurricane’s extent, but not its depth. It also highlights variations in cloud cover density, albeit imperfectly. Data in false colour will give a clearer picture.
