MFF 50 2016-17 Monitoring the impact of blanket bog conservation in the South Pennines SAC using an unmanned aerial vehicle

The Moors for the Future Partnership acting through the Peak District National Park Authority wishes to use a UAV to capture Earth Observation (EO) data to monitor the impact of blanket bog conservation actions at a landscape scale, rather than the traditional site scale. Specifically the aim of the Services is to:

  1. Monitor land cover change across the Project area, including;

-Increases in the extent of Sphagnum moss

-Reductions in the dominance of cotton grass, purple moor grass and heather

-Reductions in the extent of bare peat

  1. Monitor changes in surface wetness
  2. Monitor rates of peat accumulation and erosion
