Landscape Functioning, Geocomputation, and Hydrology (LGH)
The mission and ambition of LGH is to understand processes and patterns in terrestrial ecosystems, in particular how landscape, ecosystem functioning and land degradation are related to soil, hydrology, climate, relief and vegetation. Key issues are:
- The quantitative, spatio-temporal modelling of land degradation and hydrological processes at various spatial and temporal scales, and
- The use of earth observation techniques to collect input data for the simulation models, to validate and calibrate the models and to survey patterns of degradation.
