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.
