- Space data offer unprecedented opportunities for monitoring the state and transformation of land ecosystems and anthropogenic impacts.
- Today, space data archives and novel space-borne Earth observation (EOs) are complemented by a variety of in-situ monitoring approaches of vegetation properties, ecosystem functioning, biodiversity states, land-use systems amongst others.
- The key is integrating optical and radar space data with ground observations for deriving novel downstream products required by end-user community.
- The synthesis of existing EOs and downstream products should allow detecting changes in land ecosystems, and attributing changes to climate and societal transformations.

BACI paper in Nature Climate Change : Combining satellite data for better tropical forest monitoring
Implementation of policies to reduce forest loss challenges the Earth observation community to improve forest monitoring. An important avenue for progress is the use of new satellite missions and the combining of optical and synthetic aperture radar sensor data.
