​​​​Institute for Earth Observation | Eurac Research

Earth observation from space has opened up new perspectives for environmental research. At the Institute for Earth Observation, we integrate remote sensing techniques with interdisciplinary approaches to monitor and to understand key environmental dynamics in mountain regions and related climate and disaster risks.
Our research fields and projects address the most current and pressing societal challenges in mountain environments, such as: 

• the role of mountains as water towers
• sustainable management of natural resources (agriculture, forestry, nature protection)
• risk management in the context of natural hazards and climate change

Our Sentinel Alpine Observatory (SAO) data center and our receiving station on Mount Renon (2260m) gives us and our partners and stakeholders direct access to satellite data and the capacity to process them in near real time.
