Monitoring inter-tidal flats
Main Aims / Objectives
Surface type classification and change detection tailored specifically for the inter-tidal flats.
The service is based on multi-sensor observations ranging from SAR (e.g. TerraSAR-X) to optical sensors (e.g. SPOT and RapidEye).
The ecosystems of inter-tidal flats have to be monitored according to European and international regulations (EU Water Framework Directive, Natura 2000, UN RAMSAR convention).
This activity is demonstrating the transfer of a methodology developed in the Wadden Sea to a new coastal area in Portugal.
