The overall objective of the Forest Flux ( project was to foster the development of the Copernicus Earth Observation (EO) market and improve the profitability of forest management by implementing a world-first service of high-resolution maps of forest carbon fluxes, storage, and their development over time, using satellite imagery and associated data. The services were offered from the same process of data refinement. In this process, the outputs of the previous phase were inputs to the next phase. The earlier phase outputs were also products that were delivered to the users.

Forest Flux services were implemented on the scalable Forestry TEP cloud platform that enables integration of the Forest Flux products with the business processes of end users. The services are available via an Internet connection.

Computed products were mostly digital maps with supporting quantitative figures, such as statistical data on uncertainty. They were provided for nine user organizations and sites in Europe, South America, and Africa. In total, approximately 1,200 map products were delivered.

Forest Flux project received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program under grant agreement No 821860.
