CP205  Earth Observation to Aid Sustainable Water Use Innovation
This feasibility study was assessing the potential for using remote sensing for the sustainable management of water. The research was undertaken by WRc, Infoterra (GIS and satellite monitoring specialists) and Science Systems who examined the use of satellite / aerial monitoring of water.

The work was funded by the British National Space Centre (BNSC) to research whether to put together an international proposal under the European FP6 research programme.

The objectives of the initial study were:

  1. Identification of the needs of end users eg. through consultation with industry and national / international regulators
  2. Firming up of the potential applications of remote sensing to meet these needs
  3. Clarification / harmonisation of the scope of the proposed Integrated Project with the European Commission's proposed call
  4. Identification of the potential project partners to form a consortium to achieve the IP's proposed work programme

Benefits

The research assessed the potential for using remote sensing for the sustainable management of water and hence whether an international proposal under the European FP6 research programme is valid.
