New EU vegetation and forest felling satellite data august ’21

For the Livonian sea the fish rivers are vital. Ecosystems connect. We monitor changes. New EU vegetation and forest satellite data is planned to become  available for public use at the end of August 2021. The pan-European High-Resolution Vegetation Phenology and Productivity products (HR-VPP) are to be provided at a high spatial resolution (10 m x 10 m), and are derived from the Sentinel-2 constellation data (Sentinel-2A and Sentinel-2B: with a revisit time 5 of days). They will be generated over the entire EEA39 region (33 member countries and 6 cooperating countries) for the period  January 1 2017 onwards. https://land.copernicus.eu/pan-european/biophysical-parameters/high-resolution-vegetation-phenology-and-productivity

The ideal user settings for the turnaround of NRT HR-VPP products after Sentinel-2 data sensing will be no later than 12 hours. The maximum limit acceptable for time-critical applications such as crop monitoring, seasonal biomass estimation, drought/flood impact etc is 24 hours.

Uncompetitive Energy exporters such as the Estonia,US, Canada and Russia—could suffer due to stranded fossil fuel assets and lack of investment in new technological sectors.
