Global Monitoring of biological variables and the role of the Data Cube
Humanities challenges are increased by changes in ecosystems and the services that they provide to us. A subset of Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs) can in principle be measured with remote sensing, allowing global reporting against internationally agreed targets - provided the observing systems are appropriately designed. The recent EU H2020 program is one opportunity to help to fund the necessary research work.
