DeSurvey - A Surveillance System for Assessing and Monitoring of Desertification


Project period: 03/2005 – 03/2008

DeSurvey integrated 10 modules on an integrated approach to monitor, assess, and model desertification from local to regional scales in the European Mediterranean. Integrated remote sensing and geomatics approaches represent one of the few available options to derive spatially explicit assessments of areas affected by land degradation or desertification processes.
