Resumen

Las zonas ribereñas representan ecotonos entre ecosistemas terrestres y acuáticos y son de suma importancia para la biodiversidad y las funciones de los ecosistemas. La elaboración de modelos y mapas de estas áreas valiosas y frágiles es necesaria para mejorar la gestión de los ecosistemas, sobre la base de una contabilidad de los cambios y del seguimiento de su funcionamiento a lo largo del tiempo. En Europa, el principal impulsor legislativo de este objetivo es la Estrategia de la Comisión Europea en materia de biodiversidad hasta 2020, cuyo objetivo es, por una parte, detener la pérdida de biodiversidad y, por otra, mejorar los servicios de los ecosistemas para 2020 y restaurarlos en la medida de lo posible. Un modelo, basado en datos de Observación de la Tierra, incluyendo Modelos Digitales de Elevación, datos hidrológicos, de suelo, de cubierta terrestre/uso de la tierra e índices de vegetación, se emplea en un enfoque multimodular y estratificado, basado en lógica difusa y análisis de imágenes basadas en objetos, para delinear las zonas ribereñas potenciales, observadas y reales. El enfoque está diseñado de forma modular abierta, lo que permite futuras modificaciones y repetibilidad. Los resultados representan un primer paso de una futura campaña de seguimiento y evaluación de las zonas ribereñas europeas y sus implicaciones en la biodiversidad y en las funciones y servicios de los ecosistemas. Teniendo en cuenta la complejidad y la enorme extensión de la zona, que abarca 39 países europeos, incluida Turquía, el nivel de detalle no tiene precedentes. Dependiendo del modo de contabilidad, entre el 0,95% y el 1,19% del área de estudio puede atribuirse como área ribereña real (considerando las órdenes 3-8 del arroyo de Strahler, basadas en el conjunto de datos de Copernicus EU-Hydro), lo que corresponde a 55.558-69.128 km2. De manera similar, dependiendo del enfoque contable, las zonas ribereñas potenciales cubren un área entre 3 y 5 veces mayor. La cubierta terrestre/uso de la tierra en las zonas ribereñas detectadas era principalmente de características seminaturales, mientras que las zonas ribereñas potenciales están cubiertas predominantemente por la agricultura, seguidas de las zonas seminaturales y urbanas.
