Monitoring mass and energy fluxes in a manipulated Mediterranean tree-grass Dehesa (Mediterranean Savanna) ecosystem through the integration of ground and satellite data with airborne hyperspectral imagery (DEHESHyrE)

Transnational Access Project funded by EUFAR

Start date: 01-04-2015
End date: 31-07-2015


DEHESHyrE aims to integrate multitemporal/multiscale optical and thermal data to interpret and monitor ecosystem-scale water, carbon and nutrient fluxes in Mediterranean areas with complex vegetation structure; more information available here
