The main objective of this project is to develop and validate novel methodologies for Land EO products based on the joint exploitation of Sentinel-1A SAR data and Sentinel–2A optical imagery. The outcome of the activity is intended to be the prototype implementation of a new change detection methodology for land cover and agricultural monitoring. Among the different applications, the project will deal with landslide and flood, agriculture, snow status and forest damages. The focus of the activity will be on three main test sites: Taiwan, Flevoland and South Tyrol.

The Eurac role is related to the implementation of the change detection methodology for forest and snow application.
