High latitude climate change monitoring (ESA news story)
The European Space Agency (ESA) funded project STSE - ALANIS Methane has been featured in a news story by ESA as well as the november issue of the iLEAPS newsletter.
By fostering new use of Earth observation data through the Atmosphere-Land Interaction Study (ALANIS), insight is being gained into how boreal forests contribute to greenhouse gas and aerosol concentration, and into the processes governing the interplay between Earth’s surface and atmosphere.
Boreal lakes, inundated areas, permafrost and wetlands harbour the largest natural source of methane. IPF TU Wien contributes with the development of novel for methane estimation relevant products describing the land, such as the variability and extent of wetlands, inundated areas and snowmelt.
