CQuest Data Transfer App

At CQuest we empower climate positive land use managers to conduct analyses of soil organic carbon (SOC) with ease and efficiency. We would like to introduce and share the development story of one of our useful internal tools that is used to ingest and process data – the CQuest data transfer app. Soil data are… Read More

The 3 challenges of NCS

There is no doubt that society must both cut carbon emissions and remove carbon from the atmosphere to be on track to stay under a 1.5ºC rise in global average temperatures. According to the IPCC, an increase past 1.5ºC is the point of no return, where the effects of climate change will be too severe… Read More

The Power of Grasslands

One of the greatest challenges facing the world today is population growth. How do we feed the ever increasing population with resources that seem finite? The earth holding an amount of resources too limited to feed a large population is a common Malthusian misconception. With better food practices, such as reducing food waste and managing… Read More

Carbon Farming & Satellite Imagery

Carbon farming has recently been popularized as an innovative nature based climate solution (NCS) to tackle the pressing issue of excessive levels of atmospheric carbon. The shift of conventional agriculture to carbon farming has the potential of turning the industry, known for emitting large amounts of carbon, into a climate solution that stores carbon in… Read More

2021 EXIST Grant Recipients!

We hope you have all had a healthy and productive start into the new year. In 2020, founders Julian Kremers, Stefan Gönner, and Jakob Levin embarked on a mission to enable global climate action through data driven carbon sequestration. We called our endeavor CQuest.  2020 brought many milestones in pursuit of this mission including joining… Read More

Launching CQuest.Earth (Part 2)

After launching CQuest.Earth last week, we are now open-sourcing our first app: the MODIS Vegetation Index Time-Series App. As explained in our blogpost from last week, this App enables you to compare the vegetation indices of different places over time. This is only the first set of functionalities CQuest.Earth will offer. There are many more… Read More

Launching CQuest.Earth

After the inception of CQuest earlier this year, we are proud to launch our new earth observation (EO) platform: CQuest.Earth. CQuest aims to enable global climate action through data-driven carbon sequestration. We all know that there is too much CO2 in our atmosphere. A bundle of approaches to mitigate this are nature-based climate solutions (NCS),… Read More

Hello Space2Agriculture!

Did you know that there are 570 million farms on the planet? You read that right- 570,000,000 farms!! Among a top concern for the farmers that work these farms is soil heath and as a result soil organic carbon (SOC). Soils with higher SOC content require less irrigation, are more resilient to droughts and erosion,… Read More

Copernicus Masters Finalists!

It has been officially announced: CQuest is a Finalist for the Copernicus Masters 2020 DLR Environment, Energy and Health Challenge! It was a pleasure to be able to work with scientists Franciscopaolo Sica and Andrea Pulella from the DLR Microwaves and Radar Institute on this groundbreaking (or groundhealing?) project. We look forward to future discovery… Read More

Launching CQuest!

In 2012, we, Stefan, Julian, and Jakob, met as new students at the BTU’s Environment and Resource Management program in pursuit of an answer to one fundamental question: What can we do to combat climate change and promote social sustainability on a global scale? Even beyond our studies, much of our lives have been guided by this… Read More
