Überwachung tropischer Feuchtgebiete mit Kopernikus-Satellitendaten

Demo-Wetlands ist ein Forschungsprojekt, das sich explizit mit dem Bedarf an internationalen Übereinkommen für standardisierte Methoden der Feuchtgebietsüberwachung durch Satellitenfernerkundung befasst. Da diese empfindlichen Ökosysteme durch globale Erwärmung, Umweltverschmutzung, Übernutzung und Landnutzungsänderungen einem zunehmenden Druck ausgesetzt sind, sind aktuelle Informationen über den Zustand der globalen Feuchtgebiete der Schlüssel zu ihrem Schutz.
