Project E

E) Ecosystem services of floodplain rehabilitation

The aim of project E is to develop tools to:

  1. to monitor and map floodplain ecotopes using remote sensing on different spatial scales,
  2. to predict the spatial and temporal dynamics of river-floodplain ecosystems and its services under different natural and anthropogenic forcing, and
  3. to assess the effects of rehabilitation measures and management strategies on ecosystem services delivered by river-floodplain systems.

These tools will be useful in reducing the long-term management costs, creating more self-sustaining rivers with beneficial ecosystem services and designing smart interventions.
