What are the applications for satellite-based wetland monitoring?

The growing user network of the SWOS project is now getting in touch with the Earth observation data opportunities and mapping tools designed and distributed within the SWOS activities. A number of workshops has been conducted to exchange user needs for frequent wetland monitoring resulting in a series of specific management solutions where satellite-based mapping products can foster wetland conservation and land management. Three examples are summarized at the SWOS website:

1. Transboundary Wetland Management of the Skarar Lake (Montenegro, Albania)

2. Delineation and Restoration of the Lagune Fuente de Piedra (Spain)

3. Ecosystem Service Assessment of the National Park Eastern Makedonia and Thrace (Greece)
