The aim of the Remote Sensing is twofold. It is planned to produce - a basic ecological and land use map for the whole area covered by peat in Kalteng using LANDSAT TM and ERS-1/2 SAR images. From this map it will become evident where the peat depth is small and agriculture will be feasible and where the peat is to deep for such activities. - a change detection map and a fire monitoring system from multitemporal ERS-1 image series, which allow to analyse the loss of forest due to shifting cultivation and uncontrolled forest fires.This knowledge will lead to improved land use planning measures and fire prevention.
