EcoGlob interdisciplinary research with Univ. Bayreuth

September 13, 2023

In the last years our EcoGlob team at the Earth Observation research cluster established various new cooperation with colleagues from the University of Bayreuth as well as the University of Würzburg. One of these numerous activities was the UAS/UAS/drone based analysis of savanna areas with respect to drought in Africa. Jointly with our colleagues from University of Bayreuth, Plant Ecology Group, lead by Prof. Steven Higgins, the EcoGlob team member Dr. Mirjana Bevanda acquired various multi-spectral very high resolution data of drought experiment sites in Africa, joint by Dr. Wigley from Steven Higgins group. The study sites will be covered in regular intervals over a longer period to analyze the drought induced responses of the vegetation using multi-spectral information in cm resolution to pinpoint individuals trees and shrubs and their responses.

Various other EcoGlob joint research projects are conducted as well, such as plastic mapping jointly with University of Bayreuth or forest, grassland and agricultural mapping with the biology institute of University of Würzburg. Further EcoGlob related research activities will be posted soon (or have been already posted).
