EUMETSAT Satellite breakfast with data - part I: Gridded Data Records for Drought and Vegetation Monitoring from Satellites

Nowadays satellite data provide records of a length of several decades. EUMETSAT together with it’s Satellite Application Facilities (SAFs) provide a wide range of data records on geophysical variables.
As an experiment EUMETSAT provides a data cube for Drought and Vegetation Monitoring (D&V Cube). The cube contains data records suitable for drought and vegetation monitoring, such as NDVI and other vegetation parameter, soil moisture in the root zone, land surface temperature, 2m air temperature, precipitation and solar radiation parameter in a common data model (same file format, same grid, same metadata). The data are provided by three of EUMETSAT’s SAFs (SAF on Support to Hydrology on Water Management (H SAF), Climate Monitoring (CM SAF) and Land Surface Applications (LSA SAF)), from the Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC), and from the ERA-5 re-analysis.
In this session we will provide an overview on the data records in the Drought & Vegetation Data Cube. You will learn how you can participate in the Exploration Phase of this cube, how to access the data in the cube, how to find support and how to provide your feedback.

The session will be held as a webinar, and is directly followed by WSC3: EUMETSAT Satellite breakfast with data - part II: Monitor recent wildfires from space at 9:45 in the same webinar room.
