Spatial earth observation monitoring for planning and water allocation in the international Incomati Basin (WatPLAN)
Date du début: 1 févr. 2011, Date de fin: 31 juil. 2013 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

This project proposal focuses on water resources allocation and the identification of historical and current water use and high resolution monitoring of several water resource indicators on a weekly basis. For this purpose an operational earth observation system will be developed which includes a website with weekly updates of water resource data on water use. This system can be linked to GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) in order to make data accessible for multiple users. The main data generated on a weekly basis as a result of this project are:- Water use and evaporation- Rainfall- Land use- Soil moisture- Biomass productionThese five parameters are the basic inputs for water accounting, which is a relatively new concept that can contribute to better water allocation, verification of water use and sustainable water utilization.
