Innovators III ForMoSA

Forest Degradation Monitoring with Satellite Data (ForMoSa)

Development of innovative forest degradation and deforestation monitoring products based on multiple coverages of multi-sensor, satellite imagery in response to R&D priorities identified by the Global Forest Observation Initiative (GFOI)

Sentinel 2 : MSI
Landsat 8 : OLI-TIRS

The project addresses the main forest monitoring challenges and focuses on the development of methods to:  

  • generate high spatial resolution products to increase the precision of monitoring forest degradation and deforestation for MRV activities under REDD+
  • perform cross-calibration between RapidEye, Sentinel-2 and Landsat 8 to ensure sensor interoperability and to achieve higher temporal revisit frequency combining imagery from three different sensors.

Additionally time series of Spot-5 / Take-5 over test sites in Ethiopia and Wageningen will be used to analyse the temporal revisit of a fully operational Sentinel-2 system with two satellites.
