Bioenergy and carbon balance

SERENE - remote sensing based system for bioenergy crops

The main objective of the proposal is the assessment of actual information on the energy biomass availability in the regions as well as delivering of information on profitability of energy crops cultivation (where and what to cultivate?). In Poland, biomass producers limit biomass production due to lack of information which would be offered by our service.

Remote sensing techniques for the assessment of carbon balance

The objective of the ESA PECS CARBON Project is to assess level of carbon balance with regard to land use, the amount of biomass, the soil moisture and meteorological conditions. The project also assessed the influence of the land use cover on carbon release and sequestration.

CEUBIOM - remote sensing methodology for gathering information on biomass potential

The main objective of the project was to develop a common methodology for gathering information on biomass potential using terrestrial and earth observations. This objective was achieved by the implementation of a systematic assessment work plan and with result in the establishment of a harmonized approach and an e-training tool for dissemination. The e-training environment was an important tool for reaching the much-needed European harmonization, whereas a Stakeholder Platform was facilitate access to reliable and common datasets on biomass potential and as such it was offer a more efficient use of the available European biomass feedstock.

Modelling of energetic usage of biomass

The aim of the project is to determine possibilities of cultivation of energetic plants at different regions of Poland. Monitoring of these plants with the use of remote sensing methods is the innovative aspect of the project. Analysis of conditions of plant growth, i.e. changes in soil moisture, evapotranspiration and biomass with the use of Landsat and NOAA satellite images is done at the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography.
