    Global understanding of Earth's land surfaces greatly boosted by satellite data

    ESA perform land surface monitoring with a range of instruments onboard satellites acquiring optical and radar data. Collections of data from these missions are freely available for research purposes.

    Ship trails in the Bay of Biscay observed using PROBA-V imagery

    Ship trails have been perceived as convincing evidence of aerosol-cloud interaction. Ship emissions have been proven to contribute by about 1.9% and 2.9% to the increase in the global total and fine-mode aerosol optical thickness (AOT) respectively over a five year period (Peters et al. 20212).

    PROBA-V, ready to close its green eyes

    While the operational lifetime of the global PROBA-V mission already ended on 30 June 2020 after more than 7 years in orbit, its vegetation instrument remained capturing the European and African land mass in experimental mode ever since.

    PROBA-V QWG meeting 13

    The status of the mission was recalled: Experimental Phase is running since July 2020 with the perspective to prepare the ground for the launch and exploitation of PV-CC mission. The latest delay in the schedule of the PV-CC launch (currently Q1/Q2 2022) changed the approach for exploitation, notably owing to the degrading Proba-V illumination conditions at the time of the launch. On the processing side, the main priority is to finalize the verification phase for the C2 and start the full mission reprocessing.

    PROBA-V QWG meeting 12

    The main discussion points for the QWG meeting #12 are recalled: 1. Mission Status: the operational phase was discontinued on 30 June 2020 to limit the impact of the orbital drift and the new experimental phase started on 1st July 2020 with focus on acquiring data over Africa and Europe together with ad-hoc acquisition campaigns. Flight and Ground Segment overall performances are excellent with no sign of degradation.
