Lay Summary (Englisch)

Lay summary
RSL has developed over the past few years expertise in spectro-directional data acquisition and processing through project-based activity. This covers the full range of capability required for the development of successful operational services based on Earth Observation (EO) data. Competences include instrumentation design and construction, calibration, algorithm development for recovery of high-level products from remotely recorded data, validated data provision services, use of EO data products for environmental and security applications, and ground support for remote EO data. To further consolidate this expertise, we propose three projects that carry out basic research in view of the APEX Science Center, that will act as a new exchange node of scientific ideas. Basic research that leads to new applications of imaging spectrometer data in the fields of precision crop management, limnology and atmospheric parameter retrieval are proposed. There is a strong link between the three projects, ultimatively allowing for a sound quantitative coupling of ground and atmospheric spectro-directional information and retrieval of land and water related products from state of the art imaging spectrometer data.
