Caption

Mapping of annual submersion times of Lake Poyang in China, from 2000 to 2010. This image was produced by SERTIT (Regional Agency for Image Processing and Remote Sensing), an ICube laboratory platform. It uses space imagery to monitor the space-time evolution of submerged surfaces and thus better understand their operation and adapt management policies in respect of these sensitive ecosystems. Furthermore, the fluctuation of the water level influences the conditions conducive to the presence and growth of parasitic disease vectors.
