Project code: DFG SFB 552
Contract period: 01.01.2003
Purpose of research: Basic research
During the 3rd phase the results of the experimental studies of the 2nd phase will be used to work towards the integration of algorithms and methods into operational workflows for the computation of land cover variables from satellite remote sensing data in tropical regions. Within this framework, emphasis will be on the (near real-time) mapping of land cover heterogeneity and variability of land cover variables over space and time in the context of climate change (ENSO) as well as ecosystem biodiversity and productivity.
