Canada South Nation Watershed

Project Overview

  1. Monitor the South Nation Watershed in eastern Ontario Canada to augment capacity to estimate crop production properties expressed through: LAI, biomass and vegetation indices. This will require both optical and SAR satellite data acquisitions in conjunction with rigorous ground truthing activities, and geospatial yield monitoring information over corn, soybean, wheat and forage fields.
  2. Use EO derived productivity indicators to
  • demonstrate the impacts of Beneficial Management Practices (BMPs) at landscape scales; and
  • gauge how drainage management practices can impact water use efficiency, nitrogen use efficiency, C sequestration in crop, and CO2 emissions in the rhizosphere and soil.
