The lower Danube and Danube Delta have the largest reed bed in the world, is one of the biggest wetlands and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

The annual economic value of the remaining Danube River floodplains, including their flood mitigation function was assessed at EUR650 million*, but first step in protecting and valuing their potential is understanding.

Understanding the geological evolution of the Danube river, Black sea and of other river delta, sea systems shows us that in many cases the long term, the geological time scale may cover secrets which if you understand will give you access to real time solutions. - GeoEcoMar

In a cooperation with the National Institute for Research and Development of Marine Geology and Geoecology (GeoEcoMar) Danube Delta wetlands were monitored using satellite imagery.

How remote sensing technologies contribute - GeoEcoMar insights, in below video.
