This web site presents various activities for monitoring terrestrial surfaces retrieved from Earth Observation that are described and presented through the various pages of this web site.
The site provides an interface to FAPAR maps, products and specific tools (only if you are registered).
The Earth Land Information System (ELIS) provides information derived from space data. It includes the FAPAR and Leaf Area Index (LAI) values and their anomalies generated from MODIS surface albedo products (MODIS surface albedo page) using the Two-stream Inversion Package (TIP) at 1 km of spatial resolution.

Main sources regarding European operational CO2 monitoring and verification support capacity.
Land products quality control including benchmark against third-party data.
Update and expand the JRC's benchmark Earth Observation (EO) created to support land and climate studies, and to interdependently address the fitness-for-purpose.
The Highlight and news page will be constantly updated with information on the status of FAPAR activities.
This is the 32nd issuance of the annual assessment now known as State of the Climate, published in the Bulletin since 1996. As a supplement to the Bulletin, its foremost function is to document the status and trajectory of many components of the climate system. However, as a series, the report also documents the status and trajectory of our capacity and commitment to observe the climate system.
