  To analyze, adapt and test methods and algorithms for processing and interpretation of the medium and high spectral and spatial satellite resolution data, from the optical and microwave regions (provided by the existing platforms like NOAA-AVHRR, DMSP, SPOT, IRS, ERS, RADARSAT and by the newly available ones such as TERRA-MODIS, TERRA-ASTER and QUIKSCAT).
  The specific goal is to identify, delineate and map floodwater and excess soil moisture areas. The selected algorithms and methods for satellite data processing and interpretation that are dedicated to the analysis of severe flooding will improve the scientific and technological capabilities of the Romanian and Hungarian remote sensing teams.
