Bridging temporal gaps in vegetation indices satellite data and forecasting the futureTibo Bruneel, PhD student at Softwerk AB
In this research seminar I will present the machine learning work I have done so far in my PhD studies with some intermediate results. The research addresses the challenge of inconsistent temporal data gaps in Sentinel-2 vegetation indices time series and the forecasting of the vegetation index future.

Temporal data gaps occur in sentinel-2 optical data, mostly arising from factors such as cloud cover and adverse weather conditions. Having very inconsistent time series prevents further analysis such as detection, quality control and forecasting. Therefore we first address the data continuity challenge to obtain a consistent daily estimation of the vegetation index.

Given a consistent timeline of daily estimates, we further attempt to predict the near future of the vegetation index. Here we attempt to achieve both a high forecasting accuracy, and a strong generalisability over different locations in the world, as models trained on a single location often are hard to generalise on different environments.
