- 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 geoscience: Biomass turnover time in terrestrial ecosystems halved by land use.
The terrestrial carbon cycle is not well quantified. Biomass turnover time is a crucial parameter in the global carbon cycle, and contributes to the feedback between the terrestrial carbon cycle and climate…
