GlobDiversity Newsletter Issue 5

GlobDiversity engineered retrieval algorithms for three remote sensing-based variables relevant for biodiversity monitoring. They are Fragmentation, Land Surface Phenology and Canopy Chlorophyll Content. The variables are referred to as Remote Sensing Enabled Essential Biodiversity Variables (RS-enabled EBVs) within

GlobDiversity project successfully completes its first project phase!

The GlobDiversity project, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) and kicked off in May 2017, has just completed its first of two 14-month phases. GlobDiversity is the first project dedicated to the specification and engineering of a set of EBVs from satellite remote sensing on the function and structure

The GlobDiversity project has started

This European Space Agency (ESA) funded project supports the efforts of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), and the GEO BON working groups on ecosystem structure and function, among others, to build a global knowledge base for terrestrial ecosystems based on satellite remote sensing
