Rapid Eye satellite data used for research on irrigation monitoring

A research proposal of the University of Würzburg has been approved by the RapidEye Science Archive in March 2011. RapidEye will provide very high resolution satellite data (6.5 m) for three irrigated agricultural areas in Central Asia (Ferghana valley, Amudarya Delta, Kyzyl Orda) for the growing period in 2011 and 2012.
