The overall objective of the EU project ARSGISIP is to promote the application of Earth Observation (EO) techniques and GIS integration for the parameterization of hydrological, erosion, and solute transport models. Activities of the first two project years are presented, emphazising the common environmental problem of nutrient leaching within three representative basins located in Germany, Austria and Sweden. The scientific approach is focussed on physical parameters describing soil and vegetation cover by means of multiresolution and multi-spectral land use classifications using Landsat-5 TM and IRS-IC PAN as well as ERS-2 radar data. Results confirm that major land use classes and crops can be classified with high accuracy with multi-temporal optical data. Multi-temporal ERS-2 radar data support the separation of major crop types.
