This dataset collection contains land monitoring data from the Multispectral Instrument (MSI) on the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel 2B satellite. Sentinel 2B was launched on 7th March 2017 and provides sun-synchronous platform for the multispectral imaging data. The instrument uses 13 spectral bands from visible to the near infrared to obtain images with a swath width of 290km. Level 1C processing provides Top-Of-Atmosphere (TOA) reflectances in cartographic geometry. A further processing level, bottom-of-atmosphere (BOA) reflectance in cartographic geometry (prototype product) can be produced by the user with the Sentinel 2 toolbox. The BOA mode allows for the accurate assessment of biophysical parameters e.g. Leaf Area Index, with reduced cloud interference.
