Remote sensing

This section provides information on green biomass productivity across the EU, for arable land and pastures, as expressed by the fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (fAPAR).

The biophysical variable fAPAR is derived from 10-daily composites of RED and NIR reflectances of METOP AVHRR imagery, at 1km spatial resolution  An interpolation and smoothing procedure is applied to reduce the noise and to assure a better interpretability of the time-series.
The data are updated every ten days.
