Terms - E



electromagnetic radiation: Energy emitted as a result of changes in atomic and molecular energy states and propagated through space at the speed of light, i.e., energy transfer in the form of electromagnetic waves or particles that propagate through any medium at the speed of light.

electromagnetic spectrum: The entire range of electromagnetic radiation according to wavelength that moves at a constant velocity of light.

emissivity: The ratio of radiant flux emitted by a surface to that emitted by a blackbody at the same temperature.

empirical line calibration: Empirical line (EL) calibration forces the image spectra to match reflectance spectra collected from the field. This requires the identification of at least two homogenous targets of contrasting reflectances.

end-user: Anyone interpreting thematic information extracted from data.

ENVRI: ENVironmental Research Infrastructures. The central goal of the ENVRI project is to implement harmonised solutions and draw up guidelines for the common needs of the environmental ESFRI projects, with a special focus on issues as architectures, metadata frameworks, data discovery in scattered repositories, visualisation and data curation.

ENVRIplus: ENVironmental Research Infrastructures. ENVRIplus is a Horizon 2020 project bringing together Environmental and Earth System Research Infrastructures, projects and networks together with technical specialist partners to create a more coherent, interdisciplinary and interoperable cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures across Europe.

EUROFLEETS2: New operational steps towards an alliance of European research fleets. Aiming at consolidating the construction  of  a  pan-European  distributed  research  fleet  infrastructure  with  common  strategic  vision  and coordinated  access  to  European  marine  research  vessels  and  equipment. The EUROFLEETS2 is a Research Infrastructures project under the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission.

experimental services: Access to hyperspectral instruments and/or data for experimental purposes, e.g. development of methods.
