Abstract

The main objective of the five year funded German Helmholtz Alliance “Remote Sensing and Earth System Dynamics” is the development and evaluation of novel bio/geo-physical information products derived from data acquired by a new generation of remote sensing satellites; and their integration in Earth system models for improving understanding and modelling the ability of global environmental processes and ecosystem change. The Alliance is organized in 4 research topics, each one dedicated to a specific Earth sphere with a specific scientific goal: • Biosphere: Global forest structure and biomass dynamics are evaluated for forest and biodiversity monitoring and the quantification of the global carbon cycle; • Geosphere: The ability to measure topographic variations with millimetre accuracy is explored for improving the understanding of earthquake and volcano activities; • Hydrosphere: The quantification of soil moisture and its variations at high spatial resolution is assessed with respect to hydrological models and the global water cycle; • Cryosphere: The estimation of melting processes in snow, ice and permafrost regions is addressed in terms of global climate change. The Alliance has been founded in June 2012 and comprises around 120 scientists with a financial support of 50 PhDs and PostDocs having different backgrounds and nationalities. 18 national research centers and university are participating which represents a unique opportunity to exploit and widen the expertise of all participating centres and to maximize their role and contribution in the international environmental change science. In this presentation the objectives of the Alliance and research highlight are presented obtained during the 2.5 years of operation.
