Land surface dynamics represent one of the key drivers to assess environmental change at different scales. Monitoring activities play a relevant role to detect and understand those patterns and to measure the resilience of ecosystems.
Satellite based Earth observation methods are one of the best approaches to perform those tasks at local, regional and global scale. The Sentinel-3 Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) provides continuous and high frequency data that can be used to gather information about vegetation state.
In this webinar, you will learn the basics of image processing for land dynamics monitoring. We will show you how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites. We will employ the ESA SNAP Sentinel-3 Toolbox to demonstrate the methodology for monitoring land surface dynamics.
You can also retrieve the corresponding training support in the Learn by yourself section of the RUS portal.
