Within the Incubating SECs, preliminary research and publications are produced, providing analysis developing the concept through to the results of laboratory testing models.
Surface Temperature and Emissivity SEC
Improving estimation and mapping for land surface temperature and emissivity.
Mapping spectral and broadband surface albedos for the scientific community involved in energy balances and change detection.
Mapping irrigated / non-irrigated areas at high spatial resolution for agricultural purposes.
Risks associated with infectious diseases SEC
Developing transmission risk maps for the various infectious diseases, vector-borne or otherwise, using Earth Observation data.
Understanding landscape patterns for efficient and sustainable management and planning
Providing early mapping of the contours and intensity of forest fires, interface fires and vegetation damage to land managers and firefighting services.
Mapping and monitoring of water bodies SEC
Developing a cartography of the extent, inter- and intra-annual variability and dynamics of the water surfaces.
