SENTINEL-2 Mission Climate Change

The high revisit frequency of the SENTINEL-2 mission will support the attempts to mitigate deforestation by providing greater opportunities to acquire cloud-free image data. This will be of particular benefit in the tropical latitudes, where heavy cloud cover has previously delayed the potential acquisition of a complete catalogue of data. As well as the same parameters that are used in other GMES/Copernicus programmes (such as FAPAR, LAI, LC, LCC and NDVI) that contribute to the monitoring and modelling of climate-induced changes, high-resolution data from SENTINEL-2 can support the change detection of flood events for affected countries.
