GlobBiomass 2012 – User Survey - GOFC-GOLD

European Space Agency GlobBiomass User
Consultation Meeting 2012
USER REQUIREMENTS SURVEY
Dear colleagues,
GlobBiomass is a new ESA initiative focussed on strengthening uptake of global-scale
satellite-derived above-ground biomass (AGB) information by the broad research and
operational user communities. The following survey will help us to better prepare the
GlobBiomass conference discussions. Therefore we would like to ask you to fill the
questionnaire as accurately as possible.
Please be free to send this document to any colleagues which might be interested in a
GlobBiomass initiative as well.
Finally, it is of course very important that you help us to be aware of existing activities,
so that GlobBiomass can build synergy rather than needlessly duplicating what already
exists.
Please complete the questionnaire and return it via e-mail ([email protected])
or directly during the conference at the latest on 9 October 2012.
Thank you very much,
The GlobBiomass Meeting Organization Team

Requirements overview
2. Please provide a general description of your requirements for above-ground
biomass (AGB) and of areas where you think a GlobBiomass program could help
(Any details can be specified in question 5).
3. Please provide existing activities or biomass products you are already using to
(partly) satisfy your requirements. What more is needed and what existing
activities are you aware of that we should consider in defining the GlobBiomass
work plan?
