Applying a novel analytical theory, scientists have a fast new way of retrieving snow grain size – and albedo – from Sentinel-3 data. Read more about the importance of snow grain size and the results obtained in the Pre-Operational Sentinel-3 snow and ice products (SICE) project in ESA EO portal featured story.
The “European Data Cube Facility” service contract was Kicked-off on April 23 for a project duration of 3 years, focusing not just on development of innovative product, but mostly on an operational service to be used by millions of people around the world. An initial portfolio of services will be available after 6 months and …
Ice is without doubt one of the first casualties of climate change, but the effects of our warming world are not only limited to ice melting on Earth’s surface.
