Results & Resources

The European Space Agency activity Biodiversity+ Precursors is a contribution to the joint EC-ESA Earth System Science Initiative to jointly advance Earth System Science and its response to the global challenges. All deliverables and papers, and access to experimental data sets and tools will be made available here.

The main development effort for BIOMONDO is now finalized and three so called Earth System Science Pilots for freshwaters has been developed. These pilots focus on eutrophication, heat waves and river fragmentation and the products and results are described in public deliverables and visualized in the BIOMONDO viewer.

For access to the BIOMONDO viewer, please contact the Project Manager (see Key Contacts »).
