Through GEOSS, by means of GEONETCast, data has come within reach of users anywhere on the globe. If no efficient processing tools are available the full strength of the system might not be utilized by non-meteorological organizations in less developed countries dealing with geo-spatial temporal data analysis. Here the freeware toolbox developed, to handle(More)
Remote sensing of water quality in inland waters requires reliable retrieval algorithms, accurate atmospheric correction and consistent method for uncertainty estimation. In this paper, the GSM semi-analytical inversion model is modified for inland waters to derive inherent optical properties (IOPs) and their spectral dependencies from air and space borne(More)

: Geo-ICT plays an increasing role in the management of spatial processes at different levels ranging from local to global scale. A world wide scientific and professional community develops and implements tools and methods to deal with these issues. Furthermore new business and Geo-ICT environments are emerging which force GI-providers to develop new(More)
The identification of nitrate-nitrogen (NO 3 –N) origin is important in the control of surface and ground water quality. These are the main sources of available drinking water. Stable isotopes (15 N and 18 O) for NO 3 –N and along with a 1-D reactive transport model were used to study the origin and processes that lead to nitrogen transformation and loss in(More)
This paper defends the idea that a participatory approach is a suitable method for basin planning integrating both water and land aspects. Assertions made are based on scientific literature review and corroborated by field experience and research carried out in the Limpopo River basin, a transboundary river located in southern Africa which is affected by(More)
Given the new distribution policy of Eumetsat (free access to the data for open research and education), combined with the possibility to receive the data using a low cost ground receiving station, on a continuous basis Meteosat data is currently received and archived. To handle the enormous amount of data, software tools are developed facilitating storage,(More)
