Water Resources

Water bodies are characterised by active and long-term seasonal dynamics, and many of them have a large area and length, and are located in remote or inaccessible areas. All of these factors make remote sensing technology one of the most reliable tools to obtain objective and promptly updated information on the status of water resources.

Modern methods of data thematic processing allow you to monitor compliance with legislation, maintain optimum water conditions, control the quality of surface water and groundwater, ensuring that it meets health and environmental requirements, assist in the prevention or elimination of the harmful effects of water, and help to conserve the biodiversity of aquatic ecosystems.

The high speed of receiving and processing satellite imagery allows you to keep track of both long-term changes and rapid processes (natural and man-made floods, changes in ice conditions, changes related to natural phenomena and anthropogenic factors).

Information on the status of water bodies received from the analysis of remote sensing data (RSD) can be represented in the form of various cartographic, statistical and analytical materials. The results of RSD analysis can be accumulated in databases of information systems built using web-GIS technology, which greatly facilitates the continued use of the information obtained and reduces the time required to communicate that information to the end user.

The methods of remote sensing of water resources can be used in the following tasks:
