9 Asia-RiCE Continued Success Successful rice monitoring in Asia-RiCE areas enabled by CEOS-GEOGLAM partnership: SCOPE-Phase I (2013-2015) Demonstration and Feasibility Indonesia (Subang, West Java Island) Thailand (Suphan Buri Province) Vietnam South (An Giang) Main Accomplishments (2014) Acquisition and provision of Radarsat-2 data (CSA/MDA) Proposal for ALOS/ALOS-2 to JAXA Arranged 42 TerraSAR-X datasets from DLR Established a Mekong Delta Sentinel-1A Reference Site Collected RISAT-1 data from ISRO JAXA/RESTEC teams developed tools NASA/CEOS SEO developed and tested SAR cloud computing platform Provided support to AFSIS for GEOGLAM AMIS Rice outlooks Ref: Asia-RiCE 2014 Implementation Report Lead - Shin-ichi Sobue, Remote Sensing Technology Center of Japan

10 Yellow: Rice in Winter-Spring 2014 only Red: Rice at both seasons Blue: Water Green: built areas and trees Rice Map of Autumn-Winter 2013 and Winter-Spring 2014 The An Giang province, Mekong delta Asia-RiCE technical demonstration site Mapping of rice cropping system

11 30 Oct 2014 - VH Middle of Autumn-Winter crop End of Autum-Winter crop Inundated fields for Winter-Spring crop 11 Nov. 2014 - VH 23 Nov. 2014 - VH 05 Dec. 2014 - VH 17 Dec 2014 - VH Achievements: GEOGLAM & CEOS Collaboration Rice growth monitoring with Sentinel-1 time series (Oct.2014-Jan.2015) Asia-RICE Technical Demonstration Site: An Giang (Mekong River Delta, Vietnam) 10 Jan 2015 - VH Bouvet & Le Toan 11 / 12 New Collaborations and Developments: Coordination between CSA and ESA to cover all JECAM (Minimum Data Set) and Asia-RiCE sites with Radarsat and Sentinel-1 Sentinel-1 (since March) covers most SE-Asia in dual- pol every 2nd cycle (24 days) which allows for the first time national wall-to-wall rice monitoring

12 Creation of Minimum Dataset Sites CEOS SEO and CSA have completed a Multi- User License Agreement (MURF) to host Radarsat-2 data for all JECAM sites to use and share methods. Guidelines for JECAM site definition and minimum EO data sets. Guidelines for in situ data collection and cropland definition. R&D & JECAM Activities 12

13 13 R&D Activities Current Research Foci

14 RAPP – Rangeland and Pasture Productivity Monitoring 2 nd Workshop in Paris, 23-24 July 2014 3 rd Workshop in Brazil, 19-20 July 2015 (TBC) Australian leadership (CSIRO) New Activities & Funded Projects 14

15 GEOGLAM – AgMIP (Agriculture Model Intercomparison & Improvement Project) collaboration Test Site Synergies – including a few AgMIP Sentinel sites in JECAM EWCM ( Early Warning Crop Monitor ) Workshops 31 March (DC, USA) and 13 May (Rome, IT) Preliminary interface developed, prototype with FEWSNET New Activities & Funded Projects 15 Synthesis Condition Map

16 16 Archive Data for Baseline Product Generation The accuracy of baseline datasets (e.g. crop type & calendars) could be improved through the use of fine to moderate resolution (<100-meter) archive data. Benefits for progress toward implementation: Establishes data request process Facilitates evaluation of new data streams Supports future data acquisition planning. How? 1. Obtain direct access to archive metadata (via COVE tool) STATUS: Ongoing; Links to Landsat, SPOT, Radarsat, Pleaides already in place; Sentinel-1, RapidEye (late 2015) upcoming 2. Request access to those which comprise a sufficient data record for baseline dataset generation (e.g., crop maps, crop calendars) STATUS: Upcoming once archive links are complete - will be evaluated for JECAM/SIGMA sites first Acquisition Strategy: Archival Data Links Update

17 17 Data Services Prototypes JECAM SAR Intercomparison Data Services Project o Sites (8 total): Argentina, Belgium/France, Canada (Red River), Canada (South Nation), China (Heilongjiang), China (Jiangsu), China (Shandong), Ukraine o Datasets: Radarsat-2, Sentinel-1A o Dedicated and cloud-based storage and SAR processing capabilities. Secure access and data sharing within guidelines of license agreements o STATUS: Data Sharing MURF completed in Nov 2014. First release in Aug 2015. Asia-RiCE Data Services Project for Indonesia o Secure access for JAXA and Indonesia Asia-RiCE science users. o Dedicated storage for up to 35 Radarsat-2 images (provided by CSA) and cloud processing of SAR datasets using INAHOR tool. o STATUS: Datasets and processing tools installed. Initial tests in Indonesia showed poor processing performance due to poor internet and graphics demands of INAHOR processing tool. Server moved to Asia to improve performance. The Asia-Rice team is planning a meeting in April 2015 to review progress. CSA has asked to expand the project to include Radarsat-2 datasets for all Asia-Rice sites.
