Presenting MULTIPLY at the ISSI workshop “Exploring the Earth’s Ecosystems on a Global Scale”

Peter van Bodegom and Phil Lewis participated as invited scientists at a workshop by the International Space Science Institute (Bern, Switzerland) titled ‘’Exploring the Earth’s Ecosystems on a Global Scale: Requirements, Capabilities and Directions in Spaceborne Imaging Spectroscopy’’

The workshop aimed to bring together leading scientists in the world working on hyperspectral data for interpretation of the land surface with international scientists involved in the scientific preparation of several future hyperspectral satellite missions. Amongst others, the MULTIPLY concept was presented as a critical tool to evaluate the added value of hyperspectral data over multispectral Sentinels data and as a way to integrate information from multiple satellites, an important step forward for understanding the land surface and system Earth.
