Bio-geophysical parameters are biological, geological and physical terms that play a role in the Earth's land.
Amongst these are:
- biological - plant species, interactions in the ecology, biotic productivity
- geological - soil types, sediment, erosion
- physical - light, heat, gravity
Variable mapping applications support studies into these parameters, and tracks how they change over time. The combined OLCI/SLSTR Synergy product (SYN) supports the mapping of biogeophysical variables as part of its support to Land Monitoring and Security.
