Concepts for the assessment and analysis of land surface phenology unsing remote sensing data

Against the background of global and climate change, research on phenologyhas, in recent years, become a focal topic in interdisciplinary researchand applications. In this thesis, the benefits of multi-scale, remote sensing time series is investigated for various purposes. |more|

     

Benjamin Leutner

Multisensoral modelling of biodiversity patterns

Biodiversity is in decline globally and predicted to remain so within the near future owing to land-use changes, climate change, invasive species and others. Nevertheless, there is a high degree of uncertainty and future predictions of biodiversity trajectories vary by orders of magnitude. One reason for this uncertainty is the inherent difficulty in measuring and monitoring biodiversity. Information, however, which is essential to any conservation effort. |more|

Derivation of biophysical parameters with high resolution synthetic remote sensing data

Biophysical parameters like the Fraction of Absorbed Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FAPAR), the Leaf area Index (LAI) and chlorophyll content are important parameters in the field monitoring. This parameters allows the determination of vegetation dynamics and vegetation activity. The aim of this work is the development and the comparison of datafusion methods for the derivation of biophysical using remote sensing data. Synthetically remote sensing data will be used for the creation of high-resolution biophysical maps. Empirical regressions and other statistical methods will be utilized to derive the biophysical parameters using the example of winter wheat and maize fields in Western Pomerania. |more|

Explaining and assessing spatial and temporal patterns of low productivity arable land and land abandonment – using satellite observation and socioeconomic data of the irrigated lowlands of Central Asia

Since the 1950s farmland in Central Asia has been widely expanded to increase the production of cotton. Nevertheless, the productivity of irrigated farmland is partly declining, already in the Soviet time. This development particularly affects the sub-region of the Amu Darya and Syr Dary rivers. Despite dedicated approaches to understand these processes, such as the creation of an indicator system to assess the agricultural production, many uncertainties still remains. One of the unknown variables is, which site-specific trends causing changes in the agricultural production and ultimately lead to the abandonment of farmland. A problem here is the lack of spatial data, especially since the collapse of the Soviet Union and after the formation of the new national states. |more|

MOVE – The migration behavior of migratory birds depending on settlement patterns and structures

The world population is growing at an unprecedented rate leading to continuous expansion and densification of settlement areas. This development can pose a threat to the fauna as important habitats within the settlements get incrementally lost and adjacent natural habitats experience an increasing anthropogenic reshaping. Being a well-known European migratory bird, the white stork (Ciconia ciconia) lives in close association with humans and utilizes settlements, for instance as breeding or stopover sites. However, the species is already considered “endangered”.  Thus, it is of crucial importance to examine whether particular settlement patterns and structures as well as their temporal amendments influence movement or behavior patterns of the bird in a positive or negative manner. |more|

Climatic impacts on phenology of grassland along a transect through altitudinal zones using remote sensing

Phenology in common is the study of the timing of plant and animal life cycle events in relation to its driving factors, such as to climate and environment. Phenology observed through remote sensing (LSP) is able to provide synoptic view of vegetation dynamics and help us better understand its interactions with climate and environment at regional to global level. This study aims to investigate the timing of grassland green up in the mountain areas at different altitudes through remote sensing and model the timing based on climatic factors including snow melt timing. |more|

STAGE – The influence of the surrounding urban environment on the health of the people in Germany

The living environment strongly affects the health of the people. Different influences have positive or negative impacts on the health status of the population. Nevertheless, these are not equally distributed in space. Furthermore, the socioeconomic status of the people determines the exposition to those environmental influences. In order to investigate environmental justice in Germany, it is necessary to develop a new, large-area spatial concept for the representation of health relevant environmental influences. Utilizing remote sensing and geo-localized survey data, this concept will be derived area-wide, covering the federal territory of Germany and allows for analyzing environmental justice on a new level of spatial detail. |more|
