Spaceborne Observations to Nourish GEMS/Water
The two-year project is part of the ESA Data User Element Innovators III Project launched in 2015, aiming at comparing Sentinel satellite data and in-situ measurement data. Pilot regions or so-called “National Focal Points” are located in Guatemala, Tanzania, Japan, Finland and Ghana. The idea is to improve the global representativity of the “GEMStat” water quality database.
Satellite data will allow expanding the GEMStat database and enhance its representativity.
