ScopeWe solicit papers on the land physical processes monitoring. In particular, it will include the inversion and use of land products from medium, high, and very high spatial resolution. For the last years, medium, high, and very high resolutions became a useful and a powerful toll for Earth studies. Topics of interest mainly include (not limited to):- New developments for data processing, including atmospheric correction and cloud screening;- Analysis and correction of directional effects in land surface reflectances;- Use of time series of surface reflectances for land monitoring, including land cover classification and crop yield prediction (including data integration and data harmonization);- Development and use of new vegetation indices (i.e. red edge) and other products for agriculture applications;- Theoretical studies for sensors capabilities enhancements to future sensors at high/medium resolutions;- Use of products in agricultural monitoring applications (such as crop area, crop type, crop growing, yield estimation and prediction, damage assessment);- Agriculture monitoring algorithm description;- Evaluation or validation of potential products with ground measurements, official statistics;- International initiative to enhance Earth-Observing-based agricultural information.Depending on outcome, we think about a special issue.
