LSA SAF 4th User Training Workshop
Météo-France Conferences International Centre, Toulouse, France
15-17 November 2010

The 4th LSA SAF User Training Workshop will take place in Toulouse, France from 15 to 17 November 2010 at the Météo-France Conferences International Centre


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, down-welling surface short and long wave fluxes, snow cover, vegetation parameters (FVC, LAI, and FAPAR), evaporation, and a suite of forest fire products.
