    Article
    Open Access
    Earth observation satellite programs are currently facing, for some applications, the need to deliver hourly revisit times, subkilometric spatial resolutions, and near-real-time data access times. These stringent requirements, ...
  • L-band vegetation optical depth seasonal metrics for crop yield assessment 

    Chaparro Danon, David; Piles Guillem, Maria; Vall-Llossera Ferran, Mercedes Magdalena; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Konings, Alexandra G.; Entekhabi, Dara (2018-06-01)
    Article
