Minimize Applications

SLSTR is the successor of the (A)ATSR series (aboard the ERS and ENVISAT missions) and as such provides many applications within which Sea Surface Temperature (SST) sensing is probably the most emblematic. Land monitoring is also an important aspect of SLSTR. In addition to this heritage, new technological features of the instrument allow expanding the application to biomass burning (fire detection and classification). It should also be noted that SLSTR contributes to climate studies by bringing several of the required Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) to the scientific community.
