ESA plans to introduce a new Earth Explorer in 2023, BIOMASS. Its mission is to improve our understanding on the role of the land biosphere on the global carbon cycle, with clear implications in a context of climate change.
The Project Office BIOMASS aims to
- synthesize, produce and disseminate relevant information within the national BIOMASS community
- identify gaps
- investigate solutions within the context of the BIOMASS mission
- establish communication to maintain a necessary dialogue within the broader context of the BIOMASS mission.
