directly measured with remotely sensed data. However, many parameters which influence the ground thermal regime and surface indicators can be captured with satellite data in an operational manner. Those are e.g. land surface temperature, land cover and snow parameters, soil moisture and terrain changes. Within the ESA DUE Permafrost project a wide range of EO datasets are investigated and integrated in an information system with extensive involvement of the permafrost research community. This comprises pan-boreal/arctic to regional and local scale investigations. The capabilities of currently available remotely sensed datasets have been assessed with respect to operational monitoring. This paper summarizes those components of the processing system which address automatized integration of remotely sensed products: land surface temperature, soil moisture (incl. freeze/thaw), open water, snow parameters and methane.1
