Hosted by EIC Mikael Angelo Francisco, Ask Theory shines the spotlight on Pinoy scientific brilliance, in a fun and entertaining “kwentuhan” format. Each episode of Ask Theory  features a Pinoy scientist from one of the various scientific disciplines. In a very casual conversation, guests explain what they do in simple terms, as well as share their fascinating stories: how they got into science, the challenges they face, what motivates them to pursue their fields, what future scientists from the Philippines can look forward to, and so much more.

Episode 88: Paano Ginagamit Ang Satellites Sa Pag-Aaral Ng Panahon?

Archie Veloria is a Supervising Science Research Specialist under the PhilSA’s Earth Sciences Space Mission Studies Division. His research revolves around satellite remote sensing of the environment, extreme weather monitoring and forecasting, and rainfall climatology.

We talked about space science and technology applications within the Philippine context, how satellites contribute to understanding weather and climate systems, how we use satellites to monitor air pollution, why there is a need for science-based environmental solutions and policies, the state of Philippine space science in the next ten years, and more.
