- Website: General EURAC activities: NODE 3: In this Node EURAC is responsible to acquire, process and manage the Earth observation that will be distributed to the other partners. This Node is divided into four separate Work packages WP 3101: PRISMA preprocessing The input here is the PRISMA imagery as distributed by the Italian Space agency (ASI). The work of this WP lasts for the complete two-year cycle with a higher impact at the beginning of the project. Eurac has four tasks in this WP: Acquisition of hyperspectral PRISMA data by study site Evaluation / Quality checking of the data Correction of the data Cloud cover masks The output of the WP is ready to use PRISMA data that will be distributed through the activities in WP3103. WP 3102: Other Remote Sensing data processing The input of this WP are Copernicus Sentinel-1 data, if available, additional SAR data such as ALOS-2 or SAOCOM and Copernicus Sentinel-2 multispectral data. The work of this WP lasts for the complete two-year cycle with a higher impact at the beginning of the project. Eurac has two tasks in this WP: Pre-processing of SAR data Pre-processing of multispectral RS data The output of the Work package is ready to use SAR and multispectral data distributed through the activities in WP3103 WP 3103: Remote Sensing Data management and coordination The input of this WP are the datasets created in WP3101 and WP3102. The work of this WP lasts for the complete two-year cycle with a higher impact at the beginning of the project. Eurac has three tasks in this WP: Standardized storage of all the Remote Sensing data in Rasdaman multidimensional arrays (data cubes) Set up of dedicated data cubes based on location and data product Enable the access to the data cubes to the project partners The output of the Work package is Remote Sensing data organized in different data cubes and ready to be used by partners. WP 3104: Field data in grasslands The input of this WP is t
The Hyperecos project is a 2.5-year project part of the “PRISMA Scienza” tender by the Italian Space agency (ASI). In this project lead by the Tuscia University, EURAC Research is a project partner alongside the Terrasystem SRL, the “Consiglio per la ricerca in agriculture e l’analisi dell’economia agraria (CREA) and the Trier University. In this project we evaluate the new hyperspectral Earth Observation data from the PRISMA mission data and advanced big data analysis techniques for ecosystems studies. Hyperspectral datasets allow the linking of plant canopy, ecosystem and habitat features to the spectral-optical properties. Together with complementary EO-data available such as SAR data certain specific traits linked to water content and vegetation structure can be researched. This project is focused on Alpine Grasslands, Forests, and Wetlands (coastal vegetation) ecosystems, already suffering from climate and anthropogenic impacts. In seven different sites the project is intended to analyze ecosystems and their changes by mapping ecosystem subtypes and biodiversity based on broad vegetation classes, recognizable with hyperspectral data as provided by the PRISMA mission.
