This course is aimed to facilitate the use of satellite data for Land Surface Analysis in conjunction with ground observations, model outputs and in-situ measurements.

Eumetsat has established a user group, Satellite Application for Land surface Analyses group for Easten Europe /SALGEE/ in order to complement the LSA SAF activities for the regions of SEE, EE and other regions of interest. The main aim is to combine knowledge from satellites, ground modeling and observations for the various land applications.
