Contribution of Copernicus in support to monitoring of habitats, species and the Natura 2000 network - ETC/BD Working paper N°D/2016

01 Oct 2016


Copernicus land monitoring services present a landmark in European earth observation. The project provides a common framework for a frequently updated monitoring system of environmental change at European scale. The goal of the present work is to explore how the relevant product portfolio of the Copernicus framework could be used to contribute to the monitoring of habitats, species and the Natura 2000 network.
