Design of a mobile phone application for sea ice observations

Using the IceWatchApp, citizen scientists will be mapping sea ice. These photographs will enhance satellite data from the Copernicus Sentinels and other missions where the lack of data from the Polar Regions hinders the development of automatic classification products.

Harmonizing Remote Sensing and Citizen Science vegetation phenology observations

observationsThe PhenoTandem pilot project aims to create new phenology data combining in-situ observations and remote sensing products such as those provided by Sentinel-2. It will increase data on phenology at scale that hasn’t been done before. Also, a new observation protocol of in-situ phenology will be delivered for future observation campaigns in the Catalonian region.

A Reliable Rainfall Product for West Africa

The Schools and Satellites (SaS) pilot project combines citizen science-based monitoring and a new satellite rainfall product which will use diverse sensors onboard ESA’s Sentinel satellites, as well as MSG’s Aviris. As a result, the SaS rainfall product will produce reliable and accurate rainfall information in West Africa.

Sentinel Citizen

Setting foundations for atmospheric commons

The Sentinel Citizen pilot project contributes to enhancing air pollution forecasts through EO data in local communities in North Holland, with which they can influence policymakers to develop policy-oriented actions. For validation, data from the TROPOMI instrument and from the CAMS will be used.
