• Our projects

    Large areas of globally important tropical peatland in Southeast Asia are under threat from land clearance, degradation and fire jeopardising their natural functions as reservoirs of biodiversity, carbon stores and hydrological buffers. Local research capability will be strengthened enabling peatland managers to better understand and address the different, interrelated processes operating in tropical peatlands.



Three Ortho-Photo-Mosaiks taken with high-resolution Hasselblad camera on 6. August 2011 at transmigration village Kuala


From the approx. 420 available RGB-Photos we processed 3 tracks to Ortho-Photo-Mosaiks with 8cm respectively 10cm resolution which can be visualise with ArcGis SW.The Ortho-Photo-Mosaiks of the 3 tracks was superimposed with a calculated DEM. The survey was performed for Prof. Amano, Faculty of Human Science, Waseda UNI, Japan
