MERIS Vegetation Processors

Description: A set of three VISAT plug-ins and stand-alone processors:

  • BAER - computes the Aerosol Optical Thickness, the Angstrom coefficient and generates atmospherically corrected reflectances in 13 channels over land from MERIS Level-2 data

MERIS MEPIX Processor

Description: MEPIX is a BEAM scientific processor for multiple use. In the short term, it was serving as an experimental platform to evaluate the new products which are derived from the exploitation of the oxygen band. This work was done in the context of the ESA O2 project. In parallel that part of the MERIS L2 processing which is relevant for the pixel classification has also been implemented in an extended version of MEPIX, with the objective to test the standard MERIS pixel classification with the new pressure products. Furthermore, the pixel classification as developed in the GlobCover and AlbedoMap projects has been integrated in the MEPIX processor. This allows e.g. to compare the standard L2 pixel classification with the GlobCover one, which is part of work being done for the MERIS Data Quality Working Group.

MERIS ICOL+ Processor

Description: ICOL+ is an advanced version of the ICOL processor, which is used to correct for the adjacency effect (increased radiance due to scattering and reflection of photons) in MERIS L1B data.
Among other improvements, ICOL+ allows for an adjacency correction over land, and is able to process also Landsat TM data.
Algorithms: R. Santer of LISE (Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale, France), F. Zagolski from Parbleu, Canada
Software: M. Zühlke and O.Danne, Brockmann Consult
Version: 2.5
Module: ICOL version 2.5 will be available as public BEAM 4.7 plugin in early autumn 2010. In the meantime, please use the former ICOL version 1.0.4, which is available as BEAM 4.5 plugin.
