Title: Africa Real Time Environmental Monitoring Information System (ARTEMIS)
Description:
Abstract:
The "Africa Real Time Environmental Monitoring Information System (ARTEMIS)" is part of the FAO's use of satellite remote sensing techniques to improve the surveillance and forecasting capabilities of its Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS). ARTEMIS was developed as a result of close technical cooperation between the FAO and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, and the National Aerospace Laboratory of the Netherlands. Since August 1988, the ARTEMIS system has been delivering the following products on a routine basis: ten-day and monthly cold cloud duration maps for the continent of Africa and the Near East (resolution 7.6 km); ten-day and monthly estimated rainfall maps for the Southern Sahara, the Sahel, Sudan, and the tropical countries of West Africa (resolution 7.6 km); ten-day and monthly composite vegetation index maps for Africa, and the Near East. In addition to these databases, ARTEMIS contains a ten-year vegetation index archive on a ten-day and monthly basis, developed jointly by NASA GSFC and the FAO Remote Sensing Centre. This archive allows for early assessment of current crop growing conditions by comparison with known situations in the past. LANGUAGE: English ACCESS/AVAILABILITY: ARTEMIS data products are available in photographic and digital formats. Analyzed infomation is communicated in bulletins and publications of Global Information and Early Warning System (GIEWS) and Emergency Centre for Locust Operations (ECLO) of FAO. For making ARTEMIS data available in a timely manner to users, more and more use is currently being made of electronic mail.
