Sentinel-2 Surface Reflectance Products Generated By CNES And DLR: Methods, Validation And Applications

Speaker(s):

I am an engineer at CNES, the French Space Agency, and a researcher at CESBIO. I have spent the early years of my career at CNES working on the image quality of remote sensing optical satellites, with a focus on absolute calibration using natural targets.



I then migrated to CESBIO, still with CNES as employer, where I worked on Sentinel-2 and Venµs satellites, with a focus on preprocessing tasks such as cloud detection, atmospheric correction, or directionnal effects correction, and I was the designer of the MAJA and WASP processors for L2A and L3A pre-processing. I am also involed in the mission groups of Trishna, Sentinel2-NG, and Sentinel-HR earthobservation satellites.satellite.



I am now the team leader for CESBIO's observation systems team, one of the two teams within CESBIO.
