Abstract

The present study proposes a concept and a joint processing chain for integrating the ESA’s upcoming Sentinel 1-3 satellites to address the needs from a series of users. The framework considers the advantages of the single Sentinel systems in terms of the spatial, temporal and thematic detail for the generation of a global land cover dynamics and change (LCDC) product. In addition, a calibration and validation plan is discussed and open science issues to fully implement the product have been identified. In order to (i) address key user requirements and (ii) develop concepts and processing techniques for a global LCDC product that go beyond the current state-of-the-art, user requirements and available global state-of-the-art land cover efforts and retrieval approaches of similar nature and their shortcomings were considered.
