The main purpose of the LSA SAF is to
develop techniques to retrieve parameters related with land, land-atmosphere interactions, and biospheric
applications, using data from satellites, with special emphasis on Meteosat and Metop series. The LSA SAF
system currently generates and distributes on an operational basis the following products : land surface temperature,
albedo, down-welling surface short and long wave fluxes, snow cover, vegetation parameters (FVC, LAI, and FAPAR),
evaporation, and a suite of forest fire products.
Please fill the questionnaire and return it to Contact persons.
