The objective of the project is to use Data Assimilation techniques to generate land surface products combining the data from Sentinels 2 and 3.
Building upon the work undertaken in OPTIRAD, this project extends the capabilities of the system to include observation operators in the thermal part of the spectrum. Components will be added to the system to incorporate the functions of the SCOPE radiative transfer model. This will allow the informal from the thermal domain from Sentinel-3 to be combined with the high spectral resolution visible and near infrared information from Sentinel-2. The project will also implement a series of efficiency improvements to the algorithms to speed up the processing, as the current version is very compute intensive.
