Mapping leaf area index in a mixed temperate forest using Fenix airborne hyperspectral data and Gaussian processes regression

Last update on Nov. 4, 2020.

Machine learning algorithms, in particular, kernel-based machine learning methods such as Gaussian processes regression (GPR) have shown to be promising alternatives to traditional empirical methods for retrieving vegetation parameters from remotely sensed data. However, the performance of GPR in predicting forest biophysical parameters has hardly been examined using full-spectrum airborne hyperspectral data. The main objective ...

Megacity and local contributions to regional air pollution: an aircraft case study over London

Last update on Nov. 4, 2020.

In July 2017 three research flights circumnavigating the megacity of London were conducted as a part of the STANCO training school for students and early career researchers organised by EUFAR (European Facility for Airborne Research). Measurements were made from the UK's Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) BAe-146-301 atmospheric research aircraft with the aim ...

Validation of TROPOMI tropospheric NO2 product based on APEX hyperspectral data: the S5PVAL-BE campaign in Belgium

Last update on Nov. 4, 2020.

Sentinel-5P (S-5P) is the first mission of the European Union’s Earth Observation Programme, Copernicus, dedicated to the monitoring of air quality, climate and ozone. The instrument on-board S5-P is the TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) nadir-viewing spectrometer. The tropospheric nitrogen dioxide (NO2) product, with a spatial resolution of 3.5 x 7 km2 ...
