Satellite-based information for grassland management

​A special focus of this project is on the use of Sentinel-1&2 to derive information for:

  • Enhanced grassland management
  • Refining outcomes of plant growth models

The project increase general understanding on grasslands and related management practices and reveals the benefits and limitations of remote sensing products for grassland monitoring. The interdisciplinary project aims to develop innovative decision-making products for grassland managements which can be helpful for:

  • Economically operation of grasslands
  • Resilience and protection of grasslands under climate change
  • Protection of soil and groundwater as an important sources in whole Germany
