METyrol

Monitoring of shallow erosion in the montane to alpine elevation zone of Tyrol with remote sensing methods
Shallow erosion in the Central Alps_2015-09

The objective of the project METyrol is to develop and test methods for the automated detection and quantification of shallow erosion with remote sensing data. Possibilities to combine geomorphological knowledge, spatial context and remote sensing for the classification and monitoring of erosion areas are assessed in two study areas in Tyrol. The project is funded by the Tyrolean Science Fund (Mayr A.).
