Ivvavik tasks under the GRIP Polarimetric RADARSAT-2 for mapping and monitoring wetlands and their environment

  • Objectives:

    • Investigate RADARSAT-2 unique polarimetric and all-weather capabilities for mapping and monitoring wetlands and their environments;

    • Investigate multi-frequency complementarities C-band VS L-band using RADARSAT-2 and ALOS.

  • Partners:

    • PCA : Ivvavik (Donald)

  • CCRS : R. Touzi, R. Fraser, A.-M. Demers, A. Deschamps, and G. Gosselin (RAP, Ph.D. student)

  • Deliverable for April 09:

    • Report on the field data collection;

    • Report on the preliminary results with RADARSAT-2.

Objective:

Investigation of the complementarities of polarimetric RADARSAT-2 and Optic for vegetation structure characterization.

First Deliverables expected in Sep 2009.


Field work measurements in the wetlands : mapping and monitoring wetlands and their environment 1. GPS coordinates2. Active layer depth3. Main vegetation stratum (herb, shrub, tree, moss, lichen) 4. Percent cover of each vegetation stratum 5. Height of the vegetation (trees and shrubs) 6. Substratum drainage (excellent, medium, not well drained, …)7. Height of the water table8. Site diagram9.
