Abstract :

Satellite Sentinel-2 offers a global coverage of the Earth at the frequency of a few days with pixel size ranging from 10 to 20 meters. Such spatio-temporal resolution fosters an advanced research in agriculture. Accounting for BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function) information is required both for target monitoring and surface albedo estimate. BRDF sampling being limited from HR (High Resolution) sensors, the added-value of the BRDF 300m from PROBA-V instrument is assessed. Results are shown for the seasonal cycles 2016 and 2017 using parameterized and detailed radiation transfer models. The validation is carried on for anchor ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) stations located on the French territory.
