TU Wien had two presentations at this workshop. The first one was in the extreme weather event session. There we showed how Earth observation data can be used for drought monitoring and showed how the data we collected in Clim4Cast will help to further advance this. We presented our progress on the DHF database and our work on the medium-resolution ASCAT soil moisture dataset. The second presentation was in the agriculture session. There we showed how we can use the crop yield dataset that we collected in Clim4Cast to forecast crop yields using machine learning and Earth Observation, and how severe droughts impact the forecasting of crop yields.
