The Surat CCS project is required to confirm compliance with environmental licence conditions, particularly in the capacity of the land to sustain pasture growth. One way to address this issue is the use of remote sensing of vegetation and soils as a tool for monitoring the condition of the land over large areas and on a regular basis. This project provides:
- Determining the best remote sensing techniques and instrument types to be used for timely detection of anomalies in vegetation due to factors related to CCS
- Unequivocally discriminate between potential causes for any vegetation or soil anomalies detected such as natural climate variability, grazing or other human-driven land management.
