TOWARDS THE RETRIEVAL OF LAKE ICE THICKNESS FROM SATELLITE ALTIMETRY MISSIONS (LIAM)

The objective of this project is to examine the sensitivity of radar backscatter and brightness temperature measurements acquired by satellite altimetry missions to lake ice thickness, an  Essential Climate Variable (ECV), using the Snow Microwave Radiative Transfer (SMRT) model. H2O Geomatics is leading this effort.

Duration: 2020-2021

ESA CCI+ LAKES

The overarching objective of Climate Change Initiative (CCI) Lakes is to produce and validate a consistent data set of the variables grouped under the Lakes Essential Climate Variable (ECV) which include Lake Water Level (LWL), Lake Water Extent (LWE), Lake Surface Water temperature (LSWT), Lake Ice Cover (LIC), and Lake Water-Leaving Reflectance (LWLR). The project aims to process the longest period of combined satellite observations by designing and operating processing chains contributing to a sustainable production system.

 

H2O Geomatics is a partner leading the development of the LIC product from optical satellite data.

DEVELOPMENT OF A CROP DISEASE RISK ASSESSMENT WEB TOOL FOR THE CANADIAN PRAIRIES

Under the Innovative Solutions Canada program, this project (Phase 1 - Proof of concept) addressed a challenge articulated by the Canadian Space Agency (Challenge ID - Artificial Intelligence and Big Data Analytics for Advanced Autonomous Space Systems).

The project designed and delivered the first version of a crop disease risk model based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the prototype of a Crop Disease Risk Assessment web tool.
