ECOSTRESS LSE-LSTEuropean ECOSTRESS Hub (EEH):  Release of fast-track data access catalogue service

Data and products of NASA’s ECOSTRESS mission acquired over Europe and Africa are now available for downloading and further processing at the FSTEP. The new data access is part of the European ECOSTRESS HUB (EEH), a project funded by ESA in support of the Copernicus Land Surface Temperature Monitoring (LSTM) High Priority Candidate Mission.

Within EEH, ECOSTRESS data is searchable for user defined area of interest and start/end dates. The current holdings include data spanning approximately one year of acquisition from 08/2018 until 08/2021 and cover eight products, level 1 (RAD, GEO), level 2 (CLOUD, LSTSW, LSTTES), level 3 (ETSTIC, ETSEBS, ETTSEB).

The EEH ECOSTRESS data repository was built to test and develop dedicated land surface temperature (LST) and evapotranspiration (ET) retrievals with user exchangeable algorithms and auxiliary data on a cloud platform in preparation of the LSTM mission. Within the EEH project, the Temperature Emissivity Separation (TES) algorithm and the Generalized Split Window (GSW) for LST and three different models (STIC, TSEB and SEBS) for ET will be implemented and made available through the Food Security TEP.

The following links provide detailed information about the algorithms used (EHH-LST, EHH-LSTET, EEH-ET) and also this scientific publication.

EHH Data Download: FS-TEP offers a service called "ECOSTRESS Data Download". This service was implemented to download EHH data which has been previously identified and selected. All the information needed to execute successfully this service can be found on the UI (user interface) of the service itself. Regarding how to run services, useful information can be found here. It is also recommended to use the databaskets feature for selecting/grouping EHH data once it has been found using the search function. For more information about how to use the platform, please do consult the user manual.
