The ASI hyperspectral satellite acquires in Kenya for the HyRELIEF project funded by ESA

03 March 2023

The panel shows a PRISMA image (natural color composite) acquired over the The Kapiti Research Station in Kenya on January 19th, 2023. This rangeland, due to the abundance of wildlife, is also a conservancy area (adjacent to the Nairobi National Park). The station hosts some instrumentation for measuring carbon fluxes and surface optical properties. For this it has been chosen as study area for the HyRELIEF project (https://www.itc.nl/hyrelief/) funded by ESA within the EO Africa initiative, with the objective of exploiting Earth Observation satellite data for drought monitoring. PRISMA images are processed to provide geocoded added value information - about vegetation and soil - to evapotranspiration models.
