4th Global Vegetation Workshop
Long term global monitoring of vegetation variables using moderate resolution satellites: June 16-19, 2009
A fourth global vegetation workshop at the University of Montana
The workshop was a huge success. Thanks to everyone who attended.
The presentations and posters from the 2009 Golbal Vegetation Workshop are available online.
- Global Observations through the Global Observation of Forest Cover /Global Observation of Landcover Dynamics (GOFC/GOLD) and the Integrated Global Observations of Land (IGOL)
- Climate Science though the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and Global Terrestrial Observing System's Terrestrial Observation Panel for Climate (GTOS-TOPC)
- Societal Benefits through the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS)
Global vegetation parameters are critical for each of these three areas. The global product inter-sensor framework developed at this workshop will be submitted formally to each of these programs through their respective channels.
