Peter van Bodegom and Phil Lewis joined a workshop in Bern (Switzerland) organized by the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) titled “Exploring the Earth’s Ecosystems on a Global Scale: Requirements, Capabilities and Directions in Spaceborne Imaging Spectroscopy.”
The workshop aimed to connect the world’s leading scientists 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, MULTIPLY was presented as a critical tool to evaluate the added value of hyperspectral data over multispectral Sentinels data. It is a way to integrate information from multiple satellites and an important step forward for understanding land surface and system Earth.
