Book of Extended Abstracts. Webinar on Methods for Ecohydraulics: Remote Sensing, 17-20 May 2022
The present work aims to summarize the outcomes of the webinar on Remote Sensing in Ecohydraulics, co-organized by the Institute of Geophysics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the IAHR Committee on Ecohydraulics, the IAHR Poland Young Professional Network and ECoENet.During the webinar, four keynote lectures and twelve technical notes, mainly coming from young researchers, provided the framework of the state-of-the-art of new tools, methods, equipment and methodologies for monitoring water habitats, and they aimed to share knowledge and address data survey needs.In terms of the geographical distribution of the abstracts, more than 10 countries were represented, showing the worldwide importance of the topic, and the willingness for developing international and transdisciplinary connections.
The Influence of Topography and Vegetation on the Snow Cover in Tundra: Case Study from the Southern Spitsbergen Area
Author(s): Kępski D.
The aim of the study was to identify the snow cover distribution in the southern Spitsbergen tundra environment and to quantify its relationship with the topography and land cover. This was achieved by correlating vectorized cartographic materials, modeled climatic parameters and calculated topographic indices with snow cover properties measured in the field and obtained using remote sensing techniques. An important source of information used in the analyzes was time-lapse photography, which, thanks to the developed methodology and created tools, allowed to obtain snow cover extent data characterized by high temporal and spatial resolution. Snow cover distribution in the immediate vicinity of the Polish Polar Station obtained from time-lapse material was related to the results of satellite image classification from the 2014 ablation season.
