These images can record clouds, water and land temperatures, and features of the ocean, such as ocean currents. This year's theme is "Our Shared Geoheritage,” which focuses on the valuable collection of natural wonders, landforms, and resources that have formed over the ages and how this and future generations will manage, use, and conserve them effectively.
