This annual report describes the work of the five IRSA (Institute for Remote Sensing Applications) and the CEO (Centre for Earth Observation) project teams in 1994. Research oriented to the development of operational remote sensing applications was carried out in support of the sectorial policies of various Directorates General (DG) of the European Commission. These included the application of remote sensing to marine productivity for DG 1 (External Affairs), the operational use of remote sensing techniques for provision of agricultural statistics for DG VI (Agriculture), use of remote sensing for the setting up of registers and the controls of declared areas, again for DG VI, monitoring of tropical vegetation and vegetation fires in association with DG VIII (Development Aid), development of semi-automatic update of the CORINE landcover database for DG XI (Environment) and generation of a European database (OCEAN), containing bio-optical information on the marine environment, for DG XI.
