Project description: 

The Project is integrating the agricultural crop maps from Sen2Agri system into ESTE through specific Module which enable the ESTE user to operate the code ESTE with added information from ESA Sen2Agri. The project idea is in using the Sentinel 2 and Landsat 8 imageries via ESA Sen2Agri processing system and utilizing the system results – near real time crop type maps in ESTE software. As the Sentinel 2 and Landsat 8 satellite data are processed by open source Sen2Agri processing system, which was developed and validated in ESA funded project, it brings benefit of the Sentinel-2 mission products to ESTE system. The added value is in having ready-to-use newest crop map data (from 24/7 running Sen2Agri system) and bring it to the real operators of the ESTE system. The operators will have the information about distribution of crops and connecting to the ESTE radiological impact calculations the operators will gain the following important information: 

  • where to focus the monitoring of plants
  • where are the areas potentially impacted by nuclear/radiological event
  • which type of land cover is in the impacted area
  • which type of crops were planted in the vicinity of nuclear facility during the year (for radiological impact assessment of routine discharges from nuclear facilities).
