LSA SAF 5th User Training Workshop
Karlsruher Institut fur Technologie (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany
17-19 June 2013

The 5th user Workshop of the Land Surface Analysis (LSA) - Satellite Application Facilities (SAF) will take place in Karlsruhe from 17. June to 19. June 2013 and will be hosted by KIT.

Introduction
The workshop aims at promoting LSA SAF products, their applications, as well as maintaining a close dialogue with the user community. LSA SAF User Workshops are an excellent forum to discuss the adequacy of product user requirements, and to establish their needed evolution. The 5th LSA SAF Workshop focuses on bringing together experts in remote sensing of land surfaces and users of satellite products.

The LSA SAF
The main purpose of the LSA SAF is to develop techniques to retrieve parameters related with land, land-atmosphere interactions, and biospheric applications, using data from satellites, with special emphasis on Meteosat and Metop series. The LSA SAF system currently generates and distributes on an operational basis the following products : land surface temperature, albedo, downward surface short and long wave fluxes, snow cover, vegetation parameters (FVC, LAI, and FAPAR), evaporation, and a suite of forest fire products.
