Tropical deforestation monitoring and characterisation tool

INPE (Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais) is National Institute for Space Research. One of its main mission is to monitor forests in Brazil. The OEMC project will create a 10-m radar-based disturbance tool to monitor and characterize deforestation in tropical forests to be tested in Brazil. We will mainly use Sentinel-1 data and future SAR missions associated with real-time drivers mapped by optical Sentinel-2 and Planet data to enable separation of natural and human disturbances.


Further details about this use case will be available shortly.
