The objective of the internship is to carry out a characterisation analysis of the vegetation of the Coussoul de Crau using remote sensing tools (satellite images), under the supervision of Dominique Courault, researcher at INRAE.

His internship was inaugurated by a one-day field trip to the Crau on 23 March 2022, accompanied by Thierry Dutoit (IMBE) and the team from the Conservatoire d’espaces natures de Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and the Bouches-du-Rhône Chamber of Agriculture. The visit to various sites in the Crau allowed a better understanding of the heterogeneity of the vegetation of the Coussoul, which is much more varied than it appears at first glance.

This internship is linked to the internship of Martin Meyer, a student in a Master’s degree in Life Sciences – Plants, Environment and Ecological Engineering, who is in charge of carrying out field surveys

This inaugural day allowed us to cross experiences, to specify the protocols to be set up and to tackle the technical aspects of this internship.

Welcome to Amadou, to whom we wish an interesting and enriching internship!
