New scientific overview paper on the possibilities of remote sensing in irrigated agriculture of Central Asia – open access

The scientific paper gives an overview of existing remote sensing-based assessments of land use, soil and vegetation status, crop production and water use in irrigation systems of the Aral Sea Basin. It is a technical overview that hints at the fact that remote sensing can fill regional and national databases with indicators valuable for water distribution and management in the Amu Darya and Syr Darya basins such as WUEMoCA (https://wuemoca.geo.uni-halle.de).
