Abstract:
The Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) is an independent research and consulting center that focuses on innovative technologies and scientific knowledge with applications for governments and industry. VITO develops innovative technological solutions and provides scientifically underpinned advice and support to stimulate sustainable development and strengthen the economic and social environment in Flanders.

The Land Use group performs marine research, concentrating on themes such as ‘earth observation’ (remote sensing) and ‘environmental modelling’. VITO focuses on research on the development and demonstration of image processing algorithms and related models, using (manned and unmanned) airplanes, water platforms as well as satellite observations (optical sensors). During the last 20 years, the Earth Observation department gained broad recognition on a national, European and global level. The research emphasis lies on monitoring and mapping of vegetation, sediment balance, water quality and oil pollution, effects of dredging activities, spatial extension of sediment plumes, etc., with the aim of ensuring better monitoring of environmental processes.

In the framework of environmental modelling research, VITO develops a service concerning hydrological models, water quality modelling, in situ measurements of water quality and quantity, water management and flood risks, social cost-benefit analyses and the determination of ecosystem goods and services. Cooperation agreements were established regarding the planning and implementation of the Sigmaplan, the social cost-benefit analyses in the Scheldt Estuary and Flemish ports, coast lines and coastal protection. VITO has specialised research infrastructure for environmental research in coastal waters and estuaries.
