Scientific exploitation of EO data: moving to the Sentinel era

 

The scientific exploitation of the EO data was one of RSS main goals, and the support to scientists RSS utmost priority. The attached paper outlines the model for research and service support to the PIs in their scientific work in particular when algorithm development, testing and validation over large amount of EO data is of concern. Immediately after this paper an entire special issue of Remote Sensing of Environment was published and is freely available for download. This issue of RSE specifically addresses the new opportunities and challenges offered by the ecientific exploitation of the Sentinels. The need for the Sentinel data became dramaticaly urgent after the recent loss of ENVISAT. An independent view on the world wide need for EO data was recently provided by The Economist
