Minimize Applications

Based on the combination of SLSTR and OLCI products, SYN is SYN is composed of mainly two Level-2 product types:

  • Surface reflectances and aerosol parameters over land projected on OLCI 300 grid for all SLSTR and OLCI channels (except thermal and absorption)
  • SPOT continuity products reproducing similar characteristics of the VEGETATION instrument observation. Ensuring the continuity of SPOT VEGETATION missions, its main aim is monitoring land use, its evolution and impact of weather and climate on agricultural activities. SYN is also an essential information source for worldwide food security. It would also be able to add to climate studies by supplying a continuous NDVI time series initiated by AVHRR and VEGETATION.

The following sections outline SYN's applications. For further information about applications and services available, see: Copernicus website.
