Thuy le Toan, Thi-Hoa Phan and Alexandre Bouvet from CESBIO just released a nice result on ESA website obtained with time series of Sentinel- 1A images.
On this very cloudy region, the C band radar Sentinel-1A allows to monitor the growth stages of rice, and allow to detect a large reduction of the surface of rice crops at the end of 2015, 2015, in the Mekong delta region. This region suffered from a severe drought related to the El Niño. This news gives us the opportunity to recall that Sentinel familly will receive a new member, Sentinel-1B, to be launched on April the 22nd.
It may be also an opportunity to great new authors on this blog, for instance to explain us how this nice result was obtained ?
