Natural Disasters Happen

Natural disasters happen due to natural phenomena (e.g. earthquakes, floods) which have harmful repercussions to human activities.

The lack of planning or the lack of a suitable system for the management of crisis, worsens the human weakness in case of natural disasters and leads to financial, structural and human losses.

Aratos Group has developed a complete disaster management system, Aratos Disaster Control that can be used as an ideal tool for planning, disaster monitoring, and evaluation after crisis. Moreover Aratos Disaster Control can provide near-real time images and data from satellite sources concerning ongoing and past natural disasters (fires, earthquakes, landslides, etc.), various natural phenomena and weather conditions (wind, temperature, etc) changes in an interactive map environment, 24/7.

What does it solve?

Solves the problem of planning, preventing, recovering actions for natural disasters(fires, earthquakes, landslides, etc).

How is it done?

Integrated online system used in Crisis Management Situations that can be used as an ideal tool for planning, disaster monitoring, evaluation after crisis etc.

How is it used?

The registered user can detect in near-real time ongoing and past natural disasters, observe various natural phenomena and weather conditions changes in an interactive map environment, 24*7.

ADC now includes a new service!

A Greenhouse Effect related index (Downward Surface Longwave Flux) of the Earth's surface as received from Eumetsat satellites. DSLF is directly related to the greenhouse effect and its monitoring has an important role in climate change studies. Other applications include meteorology (land applications) and Hydrology.
