System for HYdrology using Land Observation for model Calibration (SHYLOC), 1997-2000. Principal Investigator for UCL component
A cross-disciplinary research project with partners in four European countries (JRC Ispra, Italy – Coordinator; UCL - Financial Coordinator; DHI, Denmark; and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki / Greek Biotope Wetland Centre, Greece) focussing on the development of remote sensing and hydrological modelling tools for wetland management supported by hydrological monitoring. The UCL focus was research in the Elmley Marshes, North Kent, leading to the ground-breaking coupling of state-of-the-art hydrological / hydraulic models and their application to complex wetland environments. This included innovative adaptations to existing modelling procedures to enable them to more accurately reflect wetland hydrological conditions. The SHYLOC project also included the development of remote sensing software that could be used to establish water levels within wetland channels of sub-pixel dimensions and its testing at three sites in the UK (Elmley Marshes and Pevensey Levels) and Greece (former Lake Karla). Funding source: EU Framework IV Programme.
