Ground based Earth Observation System using Bicycles
Terra Byke is an innovation planned for the UK's cycle network using installed and maintained sensor units.
The system will provide rural atmospheric data visualisation for both scientific research communities and the public for monitoring of global change in our environment

This project aims to develop a ground-based network of moving sensors. Near-ground earth observation (EO) sensors will detect various aspects of the rural environment. These will stream a continuous stream of data to space validation teams, researchers and e-learning organisations.
There will be opportunities to subscribe to e-learning resources.
Data gathered by cyclist network will will be used for ...
- Knowledge Transfer: Climate Change Awareness Campaigns
- E-learning Software & Services for Education
- Validation with other Remotely Sensed Data
- Improved Scientific Understanding of Biogeochemical Cycles in Diverse Rural Ecosystems
- Promoting Health and Fitness
Donations are welcomed
All money will be used to help build a prototype sensor unit.

Satellite Measurements of Tropical Ice Clouds
Distinguishing High Cloud and Atmospheric Composition Features from East and West Tropical Pacific Observations … Figure 1 (below) shows a summary of the main structure and features of an overshooting convective plume that frequently form at the tropics, as identified in Section 5.3*. The analysis uses data from ice water content, water vapour, ozone (version […]
