SummaryThree German Federal forest research organisations are encouraged to support more in-depth studies providing data for their forest monitoring system especially in case of biotic (e.g. insect feeding) and abiotic damages (e.g. storm, hail). So-called change-detection-tools will betested to reproduce the development of forest areas after damages and to adjust long-term management targets of forest administration. So-Called change-detection tools will be tested with time series of forested areas. Spatially enhanced StripMap data with dual polarisation and SpotLight data will be used. The project will be supported and partially funded by forest research organsiations.
