Our project aims to leverage the capabilities of EU space technologies, specifically Sentinel 1 and 2 satellite data, to monitor and manage critical water resources. By doing so, we address the pressing issue of sustainable water resource management, helping to ensure the availability of clean and safe water for various applications, from agriculture to public consumption.
🛰️ EU space technologies
The core of our project relies on Sentinel 1 and 2 satellite data.
Sentinel 1's radar imaging capabilities will provide us with high-resolution, all-weather images, allowing us to monitor groundwater subsidence using interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (inSAR).
Sentinel 2's multispectral imagery will be instrumental in assessing chlorophyll levels, dissolved organic matter and turbidity.
By harnessing these data sources, we can create comprehensive and up-to-date insights into water quality and availability. This integration of space technology brings tremendous value to our project, as it allows for timely and accurate monitoring over large geographic areas, which would be otherwise challenging and costly to achieve through ground-based methods.
