The project CLIMASAT explores the origins of the practices and processes of producing, circulating and using data generated with Earth-orbiting satellites. The goal is to understand, historically informed, how the various ways in which satellite data were collectively negotiated, shared, maintained and used were co-produced with the forms of climate knowledge that we have inherited today. 

The project CLIMASAT fosters a family-friendly, inclusive working environment for all, and is committed to ensuring a balanced representation of gender, functional diversity, geographical areas, and minorities.
