— The Globcover initiative comprises the development and demonstration of a service that in first instance produces a Global land cover map for year 2005/2006. Globcover uses MERIS fine resolution (300m) mode data acquired between mid 2005 and mid 2006 and, for maximum user benefit, the thematic legend is compatible with the UN Land Cover Classification(More)
— Airborne Polarization and Directional Earth Radiation (POLDER) data acquired during the boreal ecosystem-atmosphere study (BOREAS) and the four-scale model of Chen and Leblanc [10] are used to investigate radiative transfer in boreal forest. The four-scale model is based on forest canopy architecture at different scales. New aspects are incorporated into(More)
— The objective of the Cyclopes project is to provide coherent estimates of bio-physical variables such as land surface albedo and leaf area index at regional and global scales and to demonstrate their application in the fields of land cover change detection and carbon cycle modeling. An essential element of the project strategy is to provide(More)
The GlobCover project has developed a service dedicated to the generation of multi-year global land cover maps at 300 meter spatial resolution using as its main source of data the Full Resolution full Swath (300m) data (FRS) acquired by the MERIS sensor on-board the ENVISAT satellite. As multiple single daily orbits have to be combined in one single(More)
