PROBA-V Global Vegetation Timelapse

Title: PROBA-V Global Vegetation Timelapse

Description: This timelapse shows global observations made with Proba-V's Vegetation instrument from September 2018 to September 2019, created through the Terrascope open source Earth observation platform. From 2013 onward, ESA’s cubic-metre-sized Proba-V minisatellite has been monitoring the daily growth of all Earth’s vegetation, possessing a 2500-km wide field of view. Particular features that show up are, among others, the snow-coverage growth and decline over Asia, eastern Europe and North-America, and the bright green colours during the North-American and European growing seasons. Note that the high northern latitudes are not acquired when snow covered.
