Project: Monitoring floodplain ecosystems

Monitoring floodplain ecosystems

The project aims to determine a system of multiscale ecotope classes that can be linked to ecosystem services of river floodplains, and can be monitored using remote sensing data. The focus of this research is on ecotope mapping using remote sensing methods on different spatial scales.  From the perspective of the current river management, our methods will provide an integrated, multiscale monitoring toolbox which will serve river managers and planners alike.
