Project Application of satellite imaging technologies National Programme for Research and Development in integrated assessment and prediction of geodynamic phenomena in order to mitigate the consequences, in urban and coastal tourist region
Programme: National Programme for Research and Development in Environmental Protection
Duration: 2010-2012
Technical Description:
The project objectives were application of satellite imaging technologies in integrated assessment and prediction of geodynamic phenomena in order to mitigate the consequences, in urban and coastal tourist region. The project was initiated by the Geological Survey of Albania and the Academy of Sciences of Albania (including the team of Centre for R&D of FTI). During the project the use of satellite images was experimented, in particular the radar SAR images and Landsat images, for the study of landslides in the area of Durres - Kavaja and the dynamics of the coastline in the area of Seman and Patoku.
