Overview 

Satellite sensors make measurements in terms of radiance, back scatter coefficient, brightness temperature etc. Algorithms are developed for retrieval of several geophysical parameters. Geophysical parameters retrieved from remote sensing satellite data are widely used at various scales by user community. Utilisation of these parameters ranges from simple monitoring of vegetation growth to land- surface energy balance studies, mid- to long-term weather prediction,global climate change investigation etc.

Bhuvan geoportal facilitates users to select, browse and query the dynamic thematic and geophysical datasets covering visualization, free data download, thematic map display and analysis, timely information on disaster and project specific GIS applications. Users can consume these thematic datasets and integrate into their systems as OGC Web Services. Geophysical parameters are downloaded and utilised by researchers as well common public.
