The main activity of the Environmental Remote Sensing Group of the University of Valencia (UV-ERS) is the development of physical models and operational methodologies for the study of vegetation cover through satellite imagery. The possibility of deriving operationally a large number of essential climate variables allows characterization of the state of vegetation cover at local, regional and global levels, and to study processes of mass and energy exchanges in the vegetation-atmosphere system. These essential variables are particularly relevant in the current context of assessment of the climate system.

Internationally, the UV-ERS has renowned expertise in processing and analysis of remote sensing data, as evidenced by its current partnership in research clusters of excellence such as LSA SAF – Eumetsat (where this group is in charge of developing operational algorithms for estimating the vegetation parameters, including the operational implementation of prototypes, product analysis and scientific validation of them) and EU-FP projects (ERMES).
