ADC now includes a new service: a Greenhouse Effect related index (Downward Surface Longwave Flux) of the Earth's surface as received from Eumetsat satellites. DSLF is the result of atmospheric absorption, emission and scattering within the entire atmospheric column and may be defined as the thermal irradiance reaching the surface in the thermal infrared spectrum (4-100 µm).
ADC now includes a new service: Daily updates of Albedo (reflectance / optical brightness) of the Earth's surface as received from Eumetsat satellites. Surface Albedo is measured as ratio of radiation reflected to the radiation incident on a surface. Albedo values shown on the ADC’s map interface are normalized between 0 and 1 over areas of 3 square kilometers.
Aratos Disaster Control (ADC) is offering its disaster prediction and monitoring capabilities in a global scale. We have created a specific use case scenario focusing on Chile, South America, implementing a specific subset of our satellite data layers mainly concerning wildfires.
