Tasks of JECAM Ukraine
Crop area estimation using satellite data. To utilize a regression estimator to combine in-situ area frame sampling (AFS) surveys and crop maps derived from Earth remote sensing data.
Crop classification using multi-polarization SAR data. To use satellite SAR data to better discriminate between crops with similar spectral-temporal behavior but different physical structure. To perform an analysis and find optimal combinations of polarizations and SAR modes to increase classification accuracy of agriculture crops.
Adaptation of crop growth models. To use a time-series of in-situ and satellite measurements of crop and soil parameters to adapt crop growth models for a given territory for yield forecasting.
