Current Research

The OWAS1S-project stands for integration of the freely available Sentinel-1 satellite data and local knowledge on physical processes in the soil for optimizing water management of regional water systems by providing spatial high-resolution information. The research accommodates three PhD-projects. While the first two projects are looking at the exploitation of the freely-available Sentinel-1 imagery and the translation of surface soil moisture data to the value-added products, this PhD-project will focus on the optimization of operational and strategic water management using the spatiotemporal information.
