The Ecoprophet project

The ECOPROPHET project is a scientific research initiative that aims at improving simulations of ecosystem productivity by using new Earth Observation (EO) products from different platforms (e.g. ESA Sentinel 2, Proba-V, MODIS, GOME).

The ECOPROPHET project is conducted by a consortium of scientific institutions:

  1. Center of Excellence PLECO (Plant and Vegetation Ecology), University of Antwerp
  2. Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMI)
  3. Center for Research on Ecology and Forestry Applications (CREAF)
  4. Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE)
  5. College of Urban and Environmental Sciences (CUES) - Peking University

ECOPROPHET is part of the research programme for Earth Observation STEREO III funded by the Scientific Belgian Policity BELSPO ( (Contract SR/00/334)
