Research project: Ground Based Observations for Validation of Copernicus Global Land Products (GBOV)

Currently Active: 
Yes

We are leading the vegetation product validation and for the first time establishing a number of sites across the globe to collect automated data for validation of satellite derived vegetation product.

Funding Sources: £84,487

Start Date: 1/05/19

End Date: 31/03/21

Key objectives are:

  • Collection of multi-year ground-based observations of high relevance for the understanding of land surface processes from existing global networks.
  • Upgrade of existing sites with new instrumentation or establishing entirely new monitoring sites to close thematic or geographic gaps
  • The GBOV service primarily allow the quality control of the main land products CGLS products (e.g., fAPAR, LAI ad fCover,) providing collections of multiple years of ground-based reference measurements and derived land Products (LPs).
