First Sentinel-1 Analysis Ready Data ingested

The first Sentinel-1 Analysis Ready Data have been successfully ingested in the test version of the Swiss Data Cube. By early 2019, the entire Sentinel-1 archive (starting from 2014) will be available on the production server, and continuously updated. This work is done under an active collaboration with Dr. David Small of the University of […]

Drought impact on Lac des Brenets

Switzerland is currently knowing one of its most important drought of the last 40 years. Prolonged heat and dryness conditions during late spring, summer, and early autumn of 2018 has led to drought in most European countries (see). Different lakes in Switzerland are suffering from water shortages and their water levels are declining. This is […]

Scientific collaboration with WSL & UZH

On October 15, we had a meeting with the University of Zurich/Remote Sensing Laboratories (UZH/RSL), with David Small and Michael Schaepman, to define Sentinel-1 Analysis Ready Data. Two UNIGE/GRID team members will go to Zurich in early November to discuss and initiate S1 data ingestion. On October 16-17, we had the visit of Charlotte Steinmeier, […]

Snow Cover Change in Switzerland

Today during the EuroGEOSS workshop plenary we were pleased to present the first national product generated with the Swiss Data Cube. We used 22 years of Landsat observations over the entire Switzerland to track snow cover changes using the Snow Observations from Space algorithm. We observed that in Switzerland, snow is disappearing and this phenomenon […]
