Our team focuses our activities on Remote Sensing, and Land surfaces and Agriculture Applications.
Our expertise is based, mainly, on calibration and validation of satellites products, atmospheric corrections and radiative transfer for science applications.
Earlier June 2022, researchers from SALSA, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Sao Paulo, deployed a sky imager in the central Amazon rainforest of Brazil, about 4-km from the Amazon Tall Tower Observatory (https://www.attoproject.org).
This deployment is part of the SKYCAM project, which aims to establish a global network of ground-based sky imagers for the study and characterization of clouds.
Eric Vermote gave an oral presentation entitled “Evaluation of the Sentinel 3 Synergy Surface Reflectance Product” and participated to the discussions toward the improvement of the Sentinel 3 Synergy reflectance product. This product is a good candidate to ensure continuity in land observations after the decommissioning of Terra MODIS.
Eric Vermote gave a presentation entitled “A complete package for ground based validation of surface reflectance”, and chaired the session on Land Surface Radiation and Inversion Modelling, Multispectral and Hyperspectral Remote Sensing and Imaging Spectroscopy, Multiangular and Multitemporal Measurement.
