12 July 2006 HALO Workshop, Toulouse geoland 4 geoland objectives – Global Observatories GEOLAND the goal was to integrate European capacities, by assembling them in a common work & objectives preoperational demonstration consisted in off-line production for each segment organize R & D efforts oriented towards service needs GEOLAND Follow-on consolidate integration of national and European capacities, including ESA efforts pre-operational demonstration will consist to set up and run near real time operational processes in each segment develop the R & D work oriented towards service needs

12 July 2006 HALO Workshop, Toulouse geoland 7 Core Service / Downstream services A Core service is a service whose users are in charge of the implementation of EU sectoral policies Downstream services are services for other users. They include : GEMS Atmospheric Services at ECMWF FAO, UNEP, AMESD, EUMETNET (customers of the Core Service through Service Level Agreements) others, to be identified later national regional other users through GEOSS...

12 July 2006 HALO Workshop, Toulouse geoland 11 R & D Plan IN SITU DATA Develop and maintain network of in-situ measurements for the validation of output products ; FLUXNET, VALERI, Soil Moisture, BSRN, Carbon storage, Crop yield & areas, Environmental stress indicators ALGORITHMS Develop methodologies for customizing the products to user needs (example : filling gaps in space & time) Prepare multi-sensor fusion methodologies Provide a platform of intercomparison of existing algorithms (benchmarking); produce & document advices for further processing Preparing the next generation of products / algorithms (to be produced operationally in the next 2 or 4 years) PROCESSING LINES Produce with updated methodologies operational and validated processing lines to be delivered to the NRT Op component PRODUCTS Producing archives of time series of all output variables. Reprocess these archives with updated generations of algorithms
12 July 2006 HALO Workshop, Toulouse geoland 12 Implementation Plan INTEGRATION OF CAPACITIES Ensure coordination between near real time operations providers in Europe in particular land SAF (MSG. METOP, MODIS/TBC), VITO (VGT, MERIS/TBC), MEDIAS-France (off-line reprocessing), EUMETSAT (incl. hydro products), and operators for key operational or pre-operational applications, namely JRC/MARS & Africa Obs, ECMWF, EEA take steps towards medium resolution pre-op. operation Integration of results from ESA GMES programs, such as Globcover, GMFS, Kyoto ARD, Globcarbon, and relevant national projects Prepare Service Level Agreements between service providers, and between providers and users Ensure centralized/coordinated communication and distribution access NEAR REAL TIME PRODUCTION Implement processing lines delivered by the R&D component in each segment Production in near real time of biogeophysical parameters, operated from the beginning of the project, NRT production soon after for the other components
12 July 2006 HALO Workshop, Toulouse geoland 13 Sustainability The goal of Geoland follow-on is to set up near real time operational capacity and proper European & national integration. Steps to go to truly operational capacity need to be identified – part of GMES governance funding source funding mechanism milestones and planning
