And if so, under which conditions? The first outcome of our project on dam-induced land system change was just published in Global Environmental Change. Find the paper here.

unpaved road in Ouagadougou, Burkina FasoMapping urban expansion patterns with Landsat series

Schug et al. 2018 show that bi-seasonal Landsat time series with images from dry and rainy seasons can be used to map urban development in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. We derive reliable gradual land cover fractions for urban surfaces, vegetation, soil and seasonal vegetation and can identify both the extent and type (planned or unplanned) of urbanization from 2002 to 2013.

satellite image with wetland classificationM.Sc. thesis topic on dam-induced wetland changes

In recent decades, a growing body of case studies linked dam construction and the associated changes in the hydrologic regime to changes in wetlands. To date, our knowledge about the spatial patterns of dam-induced changes in wetland extent is limited to single case studies, general patterns of dam-induced wetland changes hence remain poorly understood.

members Landsat Science TeamGeomatics Lab is part of Landsat Science Team 2018-2023

After having been a member of the Landsat Science Team 2012-2017, the Geomatics Lab is proud to be selected again for the 2018-2023 team . Our focus will be on exploiting the multi-decadal Landsat archive, planning Landsat-9 activities and the Landsat 10 mission, and linking between Landsat, Sentinel-2 and the forthcoming EnMAP mission.
