ESA’s Third Party Missions programme consists of almost 50 satellite missions, which are owned by organisations around the world. ESA has agreements with these organisations to acquire, process, and distribute data from their missions
The ERS programme celebrated its 30th anniversary on 17 July. Today, we are still exploiting ERS data and experts continue to work on improving the altimeter, radiometer and SAR data the programme acquired.
The Forestry Thematic Exploitation Platform (Forestry TEP) enables users in the forestry sector to access satellite data based processing services and tools for generating value-added forest information products.
The BACCHUS-DOC Radar and Optical Campaign was an area mapping project of
vineyards near Frascati (Italy). ESA required high resolution geo-referenced airborne SAR data of different wavelength and polarisation (preferably polarimetric).
The Dragon Programme is a cooperation between ESA and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of the P.R. China. This brochure presents the activities undertaken since the formal start of the programme in April 2009, its background, objectives, partners and project themes.
The 2004 Envisat and ERS Symposium was held in Salzburg - Austria from 6 to 10 September 2004. The 2004 Envisat and ERS Symposium provided a forum for investigators to present results of ongoing research project activities and assess the development of applications and services.
Proceedings of the workshop held on 21-23 October 1998 at ESA-ESTEC (Noordwijk, The Netherlands). For further information please refer to the article appeared on the Earth Observation Quarterly Nr 62 available for consultation at http://esapub.esrin.esa.it/eoq/eoq62.htm
Proceedings of the symposium held on 11-14 September 2001 at the University of Sheffield, UK. This Symposium provided a snapshot of where we currently stand in exploiting SAR data to understand geophysical and biophysical processes. It identified important areas for future research, in terms of specific problems and general trends: in total, 80 papers were presented on Forestry, Agriculture and Land Cover, Hazards and DTM, Soils and Hydrology, Snow and Ice, Process Modelling.
