Optical Data Requirements

Approximate Start Date of Acquisition: May 1, 2011, May shift slightly from one year to next due to changes in moisture/temperatures
Approximate End Date of Acquisition: October 1, 2012, May shift slightly from one year to next due to changes in moisture/temperatures
Spatial Resolution: 60 m (min), 30 m (preferred)
Temporal Frequency: 5 times over season, One acquisition over bare soil conditions; Then approximately one acquisition per month
Latency of Data Delivery: weekly
Wavelengths Required: B,G,R,NIR
Across Swath: 35 km, Cover entire Alto Parana study area
Along Track: 50 km, Cover entire Alto Parana study area

SAR Data Requirements

Approximate Start Date of Acquisition: May 1, 2011, May shift slightly from one year to next due to changes in moisture/temperatures
Approximate End Date of Acquisition: October 31, 2012, May shift slightly from one year to next due to changes in moisture/temperatures
Spatial Resolution: 30 m (min), 10 m (preferred), Requires higher resolution due to SAR speckle
Temporal Frequency: 5 times over season
Latency of Data Delivery: weekly
Wavelengths Required: X, C and L, Require higher frequencies for lower biomass crop identification and lower frequencies for larger biomass crops
Polarization Quad (HH, HV,VV,VH) (min), polarimetric (preferred)
Incidence Angle Restrictions: No restriction
Across Track: 100 km (min), Entire Alto Parana study area (preferred)
Along Track: 50 km (min), Entire Alto Parana study area (preferred)
