Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Chile launches climate change observatory” – below is their description.
Chile has just launched a climate change observatory that will gather an unprecedented amount of data from the most under-monitored part of the Southern Hemisphere and make it available online for free.
It is part of a new effort to speed up vital information for scientists to predict and mitigate the effects of extreme climate change.
The new observatory will track changes in temperatures, radiation, precipitation, winds and sea levels in real-time, including for Antarctica – a key modulator of the Earth’s climate.
Al Jazeera’s Lucia Newman reports from Magallanes in southern Chile.
