Abstract
Implementation of systematic earth observation data acquisition plans over extensive regions, in which the spatial and temporal components of relevant ground targets are adequately taken into account, is a prerequisite for successful retrieval of bio- and geophysical parameters and imperative to accommodate extrapolation of locally developed models to regional scales as required in the context of terrestrial carbon cycle science. Straightforward in concept, but surprisingly uncommon in mission operations thus far, the key characteristics of such a systematic data acquisition strategy are outlined in this short communication.
