This service pilot aims at assessing the flood risk in selected areas, its impact on urban areas and the associated risk for population. It uses Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 change detection data and relevant processing chains to generate time-series of imagery and automatically detect changes on flood events dates, in the following areas: 1) Char-Piya region, an island used also as validation area (Bangladesh), 2) the eastern part of Australia between Queensland and New South Wales, an area relevant for Climate security issues and for its correlation with flood events caused by both hydro-meteorological factors and sea level anomalies (as for case 1), 3) the west Darfur, as additional example of inland area. The main output have been exposed through the FRIEND platform public GUI based on MEEO data cube technology, to provide citizens and non-expert users with a Flood Risk & Impact Assessment dashboard based on maps and time-series charts. The FRIEND platform also addresses expert users through the Jupyter Notebook web-based interactive development environment, thus allowing to configure and run customized pipelines and workflow.

EO based phytoplankton biomass service
Inland Water, Assess and monitor water bodies   , Local and regional planners, Regional governments, City authorities, Environment, Utilities (water, electricity, waste) , Water plants, Coastal management agencies
Using knowledge about how certain substances, such as one of the main pigments of the phytoplankton (Chlorophyll a - Chl a) alter the colour of the water, these parameters can be derived from optial Earth Observation (EO) satellite sensors. Water Insight provides monitoring services of Chl a based on EO data which is validated with in situmeasurements. Also the maps of WFD phytoplankton biomass status classes are created, by application of the WFD tresholds on Chl a as a proxy for phytoplankton biomass. The maps are made available in a portal, which allows to follow the lakes in time, zoom and download maps and time series.
EO-based DSS for growers
Agriculture, Farming
Integrated free and open data from the Earth Observation into the decision support system (DSS) for growers around the world to improve daily decision making.
