Space helps forest regenerate

In Finland, conifers are not only the most common native species of tree, but economically the most important. Once the trees have been felled, seedlings are planted as part of the regeneration process. Read more here

2D displacements over Nepal

2D displacements over Nepal using Sentinel-1 pixel correlation

The Remote Sensing Technology Institute of DLR has published measurements derived from pixel correlation providing 2D displacements following the 25 April 2015 earthquake.

Sentinel-1 data allowed to measure a negative range shift of about 0.8 meters, corresponding to a possible uplift of about 1 meter and an azimuth shift on the order of 1.8 meters.

This is an absolute measurement derived from Sentinel-1 orbital geometry without any reference point on ground.

Coastal TEP is a continuing project dedicated to the observation of coastal environment and resources.
