4D Forest Moisture Mapping of Austria based on multi-temporal Earth Observation Signatures (4DForM-at)
The aim of the project 4DForM-at is to develop an area-wide applicable mapping product for forest soil moisture conditions considering species compositions. The mapping products will combine microwave remote sensing data (Sentinel-1) with multispectral data (Sentinel-2) and will additionally integrate high resolution digital surface models from airborne laser scanning and photogrammetry in order to define homogeneous forest topographic units for multi-temporal analysis. The latter will allow an innovative object based analysis on homogeneous forest units addressing the forest structure and topography in relation to moisture and species composition.
