Offer Description

Water resources are extremely affected by the global environmental change. Population growth and climate change play a key role in this regard. Remote sensing data are fundamental to assess the importance of human and climatic impacts on water resources as they provide the advantages of global spatial coverage, high temporal resolutions and fast updating. In the proposed research project, remote sensing data will be processed to investigate the relationship between water resources availability and anthropogenic and climatic factors. The results of this analysis will allow to identify and isolate the main driving factors (e.g., climate, elevation, land and water management practices, population density) responsible for positive and negative effects on water resources. Finally, the results of this project can be employed as a decision-making tool for the definition of new mitigation and adaptation strategies under various water resources management scenarios.
