The project "Global Agricultural Monitoring. The German experiment "(GLAM. DE) is dedicated to the challenge of developing local, viable services in the agricultural sector. The core scientific objective of the project GLAM. DE is the development of innovative methods for agricultural monitoring based on the high-resolution RapidEye/Sentinel-2 missions and TerraSAR/TanDEM-X/Sentinel-1. The objective is to focus on food security and food safety. The harvest modelling issues targeted in GEOGLAM and Copernicus by monitoring of plant condition and growth conditions. Specifically, it is about the derivation of vegetation and soil parameters for the optimization of yield model for wheat and corn that can be used by public users. The so-called Light Use Efficiency Model aims at the quantification of radiation turnover for biomass growth.
The project is structured into four work packages:
