DMC International Imaging Ltd (DMCii), Rezatc and University College London (UCL) have been awarded a grant by the UK’s Tecchnology Strategy Board (TSB) to jointly develop a system for measuring land carbon stocks and fluxes from Earth observation (EO) satellite data. The resulting carbon-market intelligence products will address segments of a total market today estimated at £16bn.
The two-year project applies the developing science of carbon stock and flux measurement techniques to delivering global high resolution products at regional and local scales (sub hectare).
The system will be automated for online processing and delivery through established routes to market.
The project builds on existing investment by the partners in this area and the resources and expertise of the TSB to position UK industry through the partners to exploit new services in this high growth emerging market.
