European ECOSTRESS Hub

European ECOSTRESS Hub (EEH), funded by the European Space Agency (ESA), is a centralized kiosk that provides high spatio-temporal resolution satellite products for monitoring water, energy, and carbon cycles in the terrestrial ecosystems, including land surface temperature (LST), evapotranspiration (ET), and gross primary productivity (GPP) over Europe and Africa from ECOSTRESS onboard the International Space Station (ISS).

In EEH Phase I (2020-2022), LST and instantaneous ET products are generated using models with different structures from ECOSTRESS Collection 1 data. In EEH Phase II (2023-2025), LST, daily ET, and GPP will be generated using the best performing models in Phase I from ECOSTRESS Collection 2 data. Overall, the EEH supports the preparations for the future high-resolution thermal missions.
