Paper Abstract

An operational remote sensing system is described which supports the environment monitoring using the multi sensor - multi temporal data acquired by the geostationary and polar orbiting weather satellites. The information derived from the satellite images are maps on a continental scale with data on the estimated rainfall, the vegetation index (NDVI), and for experimental use, with data on the soil water available for crops. The operational system, called ARTEMIS, will meet the information requirements of the FAO monitoring programmes in the areas of food and feed security and plant protection.
