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 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 Dragon Programme focuses on science and applications development in P.R. China exploiting mainly data from ESA ERS and Envisat missions. This brochure describes the programme, projects and partners.
The Dragon Programme concerns the exploitation of BSA and Chinese BO data particularly from the ERS and Envisat satellites for monitoring and mapping applications in 16 thematic application areas in the P.R. China. The abstracts presented herein detail the results achieved since the Lijiang Symposium that was held in July 2006 in P.R. China.
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 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.
