Understanding and modelling natural resources for a sustainable future.
The Landscape Lab integrates measurements, analysis, and modelling of natural resources by taking into account GIScience and spatial-temporal analytical tools. Spatial information and in situ captured real-time sensor data, in combination with holistic integrated modelling systems, provide the basis for the assessment, monitoring, planning, and management of landscape phenomena. Interdisciplinary process-oriented modelling at landscape scale provides understanding of landscape structure, pattern, and processes including flows of substances, matter, energy, and information and their interrelations. Knowledge at the interface of the atmosphere, pedosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and anthroposphere are key foci for near real-time analysis, forecasting, and monitoring of landscape resources.
