The GlobFluo project (Global assessment of vegetation photosynthesis through the monitoring of chlorophyll fluorescence from space, GU 1276/1-1) is funded by the Emmy Noether programme of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft. The objective of the project is to implement a so-called junior research group focused on the space-based monitoring of the sun-induced fluorescence signal emitted by vegetation. Our work deals with both technical aspects related to the estimation of fluorescence from spaceborne spectroscopic measurements and the interpretation and exploitation of the resulting global data sets for a global-scale assessment of photosynthetic processes. The global fluorescence data sets derived in GlobFluo are made freely available to the user community.
