  Can satellite imagery be used to watch newsworthy events?
  
   Earthquakes, floods, volcanos, mega-icebergs, pollution disasters...
   There is imagery for all of them! Watch relevant newsgroups as news of
   a disaster breaks.
   That's not to say there is immediate and extensive coverage of every
   possible event: the satellites capable of imaging it may not be in the
   right place at the right time! However, systematic programmes exist;
   notably the ESA/Eurimage Earthwatch program at
   http://www.eurimage.it/Earth_Watching/Earth_Watching.html _(formerly
   listed at http://gds.esrin.esa.it/CSacquisitions which is still valid)_
