EO AFRICA – Water Resources Management (WRM)

Planetek Italia (IT)

Summary

The project plans to estimate crop water stress and evapotranspiration, exploiting ECOSTRESS and PRISMA data by experimental EO analysis techniques. Expected outcome: an open source innovative model will be developed to assess actual crop evapotranspiration (ETa) using EO-derived crop coefficient (Kc) and crop water stress index (CWSI). The solution will be integrated into a web platform as a Decision Support System (DSS) to improve irrigation water management. Demonstration test site: large cultivated area (13.800 ha) located in northern Egypt.
