Pilots

Forest Flux services are demonstrated within Pilots at an operational scale in the real operation environment of the selected core users . These users, who represent different sectors from private enterprises to non-commercial or governmental bodies, provide valuable feedback on the quality and utility of the products created by Forest Flux consortium.

Examples from the Romanian pilot cases – users Forest District Renasterea Padurii and Forest District Sfanta Maria

False color composite of Sentinel-2 satellita data from a pilot site in Romania. Size of the image area is 7 km by 7 km.

Growing stock volume estimated using Sentinel-2 satellite data and reference data on forest variables.

Net primary production 2019 computed using carbon flux models, satellite based forest variable estimates and weather data.

Examples from the Finnish pilot cases – users Tornator Oy and ICOS Finland


Results in the Pilot site in Northern Karelia.

Examples from the German pilot case – user FVS (Forstwirtschaftliche Vereinigung Schwarzwald eG)

False color composite of Sentinel-2 satellite data from Southern Germany acquired 18.8.2019. Size of the area is approximately 2 km by 2 km.

False color composite of Sentinel-2 satellite data from Southern Germany acquired 7.8.2020.

Intermediate product of change analysis chain: change magnitude for the areas where change type indicates biomass decrease. The analysis has been made to Sentinel-2 images from 18.8.2019 and 7.8.2020. Green color means low change magnitude, yellow color intermediate and red color high change magnitude.

Detected changes whose area exceeds 0.5 ha have been marked with orange color.
