Open-access SEPAL implementation of BayTS Sentinel-1 alerts

In a joint effort with the SEPAL team at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), we have implemented the BayTS method to generate Sentinel-1-based forest disturbance alerts at the SEPAL platform.

The open-access implementation at the web-based SEPAL cloud-processing platform uses the RADD alert processing pipeline, enabling countries and other users to generate their own RADD-like Sentinel-1 radar forest disturbance alerts.

This work was supported by the US Forest Service SilvaCarbon program.
