### Why is short-wave infrared portion of electromagnetic spectrum so sensitive to fire?

According to Wien's law, the wavelength of the peak emission depends on the temperature. wavelength_of_peak = 2.898*10^(-3)/T where T is the temperature in degree Kelvin. So the wavelength of the ...

### What is the annual data volume produced by the individual Sentinel satellite missions?

I found a pretty exact way to answer this question. It exploits the sentinelsat Python API to extract the desired information directly from ESA's SciHub: from sentinelsat import SentinelAPI api = ...

### Determining if Sentinel-1 orbit is ascending or descending from absolute orbit number?

For the quick and dirty way to find out if it is ascending or descending, it is easier to look at the start (or end) time. For instance, in Belgium, you get the ascending images at around 5 PM and the ...

### Calculating area of snow cover in GEE

For me you would have to rewrite the last line like this: var area = ee.Number(reducer.get('ndsi')).multiply(scale).multiply(scale).divide(1000000); print('area of ndsi ', area.getInfo() + ' km2');
