English abstract:
Earth observation satellites have been used for monitoring of global environmental processes since the 1970s. They are capable of sensing properties of the atmosphere, oceans and land in different spectral bands and diverse measurement configurations. Despite the significant advances in sensing technologies, measuring individual chemical constituents and their properties is only possible in few cases; most remote sensing measurements represent bulk properties of the sensed materials. Nonetheless, the data can be used to constraint and drive biogeochemical models. The aims of this seminar talk are to give an overview of earth observation techniques and show how they can be used to improve our knowledge of biogeochemical processes based on the example of the global carbon cycle.
