Information

•  Summary table: VALERI sites, campaign dates, coordinates, acquired satellite images...
•  As the transfer functions never use the LUT, the LUT method will not be applied any more (pdf)
•  The use of news band combinaisons to improve the relation between the biophysical variables (pdf)
•  The campaign date and the acquisition date of the satellite image can sometimes differ from several weeks

Three links to get available results

1. Average biophysical variable values estimated from the tranfer functions
2. The methods used by the transfer functions to estimate the biophysical variable values
3. Download biophysical variable maps and associated data
