Earth Explorer missions form the science and research element of ESA's Living Planet Program and focus on the observation of atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere and cryosphere. In this context, the CoReH2O mission was conceived in order to characterize snow cover spatial distribution and its relevant properties: snow depth, Snow Water Equivalent (SWE), sea ice and glacier features. Electromagnetic properties of the geophysical parameters of interest, and the need to retrieve them accurately on a wide geographical scale, envision the mission around a Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) providing the key features of wide coverage, ldquoSimultaneous Dual Polarisation on Receiverdquo capability, ldquoSimultaneous Dual Bandrdquo (Ku - X) capability.

    Besides so-called light use efficiency models (which, very generally, account for effects of temperature and water stress upon plant productivity), satellite-derived information may be applied to adjust Dynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVMs). This paper attempts to assimilate satellite-derived land cover (GLC2000) into a state-of-the-art DGVM (LPJ-DGVM) and examine the impact on estimated carbon stocks. The offset between land cover information and potential fractional vegetation cover is calculated by the model and then used to adjust plant productivity. Increasing the information content of current satellite-derived land cover products would lead to more reliable estimates of parameters of the terrestrial component of the global carbon cycle.

  • Interactive poster: Visual analytic techniques for CO<inf>2</inf> emissions and concentrations in the United States

    Climate change has emerged as one of the grand global challenges facing humanity. The dominant anthropogenic greenhouse gas that seems to be contributing to the climate change problem, carbon dioxide (CO2), has a complex cycle through the atmosphere, oceans and biosphere. The combustion of fossil fuels (power production, transportation, etc.) remains the largest source of anthropogenic CO2 to the Earthpsilas atmosphere. Up until very recently, the quantification of fossil fuel CO2 was understood only at coarse space and time scales. A recent research effort has greatly improved this space/time quantification resulting in source data at a resolution of less than 10 km2/hr at the surface of North America. By providing visual tools to examine this new, high resolution CO2 data, we can better understand the way that CO2 is transmitted within the atmosphere and how it is exchanged with other components of the Earth System. We have developed interactive visual analytic tools, which allows for easy data manipulation, analysis, and extraction. The visualization system is aimed for a wide range of users which include researchers and political leaders. The goal is to help assist these people in analyzing data and enabling new policy options in mitigation of fossil fuel CO2 emissions in the U.S.

  • The change of landscape pattern in arid mountain of the upper reaches of Shule River basin in Northwest China

    Landscape changes are among the most important socio-economic forces of global as well as local environmental change. Mountain is a source of water in the arid regions, playing an important role in keeping ecological balance. This study focuses on the changes of mountain landscape in Shule River basin located in arid Northwest China. Based on the Landsat TM remote sensing satellite data of the study areas taken in 1986 and 2000, DEM (1:100000), using ArcGIS software, the landscape changes had been analyzed in the different elevation zones. The results show that: (1) Area of the sparse grassland is the largest in all the landscape types, the followed is rock. The vegetation of the study is 50%, and the dense grassland accounted for only 4.5%. (2) During the 15 years, the area of the dense grassland decreased 299.45 km<sup>2</sup> because of degradation, the mid-density grassland decreased 91.5 km<sup>2</sup>. On the other hand, the area of the swamp meadow increased 168.92 km<sup>2</sup>, the freezing-throwing rock increased 101.28 km<sup>2</sup>, and the sparse grassland increased 95.3 km<sup>2</sup>. (3) The grassland in lower elevation with 3500 m-3800 m were undergoing degeneration because of the global warming and over-grazing, and the altitude of 3500 m-3800 m was just the lower limit of permafrost distribution.

  • Extended Subspace Method for Remote Sensing Image Classification

    This study proposes an extended subspace method (ESM) in feature extraction and dimension-reduction problems for land cover classification of hyperspectral and multi-spectral remote sensing images. The main idea of our method is to use a multiple similarity method (MSM) onto an averaged learning subspace method (ALSM) and makes use of fidelity value criteria in the selection of the optimal subspace dimensions. This method is compared with the support vector machine (SVM) method using Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager-2 (CASI-2) hyperspectral remote sensing data. Experimental results show that ESM is a valid and effective alternative to other pattern recognition approaches for the classification of remote sensing data.

  • An assessment of the MODIS vegetation index compositing algorithm using quality assurance flags and Sun/view angles

    The normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) products, as derived from the NOAA AVHRR sensor series, have been shown useful for the studies of the land biosphere characteristics and dynamics at regional to global scales. Standard pre-processing in generating these AVHRR NDVI products include the compositing process, in which the highest NDVI value from a series of multitemporal georeferenced images is retained for each pixel location in order to minimize cloud and atmosphere contamination. While this maximum value composite (MVC) procedure has been shown to produce NDVI images with a relatively high degree of radiometric consistency, adjacent composite pixels may have been acquired at widely varying viewing geometries due to the bidirectional reflectance distribution effects of the surface targets, of which magnitude varies with land cover types and atmospheric corrections, resulting in large inconsistencies. In response, the compositing algorithm of the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) vegetation index (VI) products emphasizes a global, operational view angle standardization. It utilizes a bidirectional reflectance distribution function (BRDF) model to produce nadir looking equivalent reflectance values if enough cloud free observations are available during a 16-day compositing period. Otherwise, a backup, MVC criterion that includes a view zenith angle constraint (namely, the constraint view angle MVC criterion, CVMVC) is utilized to composite. In this study, the authors assess and characterize this new compositing algorithm using early MODIS data and compared it with the conventional MVC algorithm.

  • On the sensitivity of polarimetric coherence to small and large scale surface roughness

    The objective of this paper is to investigate the effect of a two-scale surface roughness description on the polarization coherence in circular polarization (i.e. P/sub RRLL/). Under the assumption of sufficiently smooth surfaces, the small-slope approximation (SSA) model is employed to derive a first order expression for P/sub RRLL/. In the paper the sensitivity of P/sub RRLL/ to azimuth slopes is presented.
