Characterisation of vegetation species, vegetation conditions, vegetation changes and essential climate variables (ECV) in various environments with new generation sensors, analysis-ready-data and field spectroscopy
The aim of this project is to characterise, through classification, estimation, and modelling,
the vegetation species: invasive alien species, medicinal plants, threatened species, crop types
vegetation conditions: pest and diseases, nutrients, drought
vegetation changes: wildfires, clearance, poaching, bush encroachment, tree cover density
and essential climate variables (ECVs): (above-ground-biomass, FaPAR, Canopy Chlorophyll Content, Leaf Area Index, Burned area)
in various environments with new generation sensors, analysis-ready-data, and field spectroscopy.
