Biebrza Wetlands water transfer

Title: Seasonal water transfer on Poland's wetlands


This image represents a colour composite of three Sentinel-1 satellite acquisitions over Biebrza's National Park: 1 June, 13 June and 25 June 2015. The Biebrza River is easily identified, crossing through the middle of the image, along with the absence of surface waters on the floodplains.

Image series acquired from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 satellite allow us to observe seasonal changes in water transfer and link them to the habitat conditions of fauna and flora, residing in the wetlands.
