  • Remote sensing of soil degradation: Introduction

    In the 21st century, mapping and monitoring the occurrence of soil degradation will be an important component of successful land management. Remote sensing, with its unique ability to measure across space and time, will be an increasingly indispensible tool for assessing degradation. However, much of the recent experience and progress in using remote sensing and other geospatial technologies to ...

  • Optical Remote Sensing in the United States

    Recent studies that involve the use of optical remote sensing (ORS) techniques to measure gaseous and particulate pollutants have rekindled interest among environmental researchers and regulators in this decades-old technology. This article describes some of the key research and development projects that are helping restore ORS-based methods to the list of currently available emissions ...

  • Mangroves of Godavari – Analysis Through Remote Sensing Approach

    Abstract  The expansion of agriculture and aquaculture farms in the coastal areas has led to conversion of mangroves in the recent past. The extent of mangroves has also changed due to the erosion of mangroves along the coast and accretion near river mouths, leading to the formation of new mangrove areas. This study has been undertaken in the mangroves of the Godavari estuary, Andhra ...


  • Map Algal Blooms with Satellite Remote Sensing Technology

    The quality of water bodies is a key determinant in the usability of the resource for the purpose required. It is therefore of great importance to managers of hydrologic resources to be able to confidently tell the status of their water resource. One of the major problems in the quality of surface water bodies is the blooming of algae and blue green algae. Algal blooms can result in ecological, ...

  • Coastline Change Detection Using Remote Sensing

    Coast is a unique environment in which atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere contact each other. Coastline is one of the most important linear features on the earth’s surface, which display a dynamic nature. Coastal zone, and its environmental management requires the information about coastlines and their changes. This paper examines the current methods of coastline change detection using ...

    Customer: StoraEnso Challenge: Need for up-to-date information about growing wood stock at local scale but global extent. Decision-making in wood procurement. Solution: A method and software for mapping wood stock using digital satellite images. Key benefits: Cost-savings by field work reduction. Fast, timely and harmonized ...

  • Classification of remote sensing images from urban areas based on fuzzy system

    The problem of classification of high-resolution remotely sensed images from urban areas is addressed. This work proposed a new method based on fuzzy system to recognise different areas in a remote sensing image. Previous studies have shown the interest of exploiting the local geometrical information of each pixel to improve the classification. This is performed using the Derivative ...

  • Estimation of stand productivity from multi-angular optical remote sensing

    Global modeling of gross primary production (GPP) is a critical component of climate change research. On local scales, GPP can be assessed from measuring CO2 exchange above the plant canopy using tower-based eddy covariance (EC) systems. The limited footprint inherent to this method however, restricts observations to relatively few discrete areas making continuous predictions of global CO2 fluxes ...

  • Evaluation of remotely sensed snow cover product in Central Asia

    Central Asian countries depend highly on water resources from snow and glacier melt, which has to be studied thoroughly to estimate water availability. However, the observation network in Central Asia is poor to carry out such studies in detail. Observations from space using remote sensing techniques might fill this observation gap, which needs to be validated. Therefore, this study evaluates ...

  • Analysis of seismic vulnerability using remote sensing and GIS techniques

    This paper presents a framework to integrate several sources of spatial information to derive a map of seismic vulnerability for the city of Arica, Chile, which has been historically affected by this natural hazard. The proposed method is based on generating a geographical database with different variables that are related to human activity, considering factors of potential reduction and increase ...

  • Salinity monitoring in western Australia using remotely sensed and other spatial data

    Received for publication January 27, 2009. The southwest of Western Australia is affected by dryland salinity that results in the loss of previously productive agricultural land, damage to buildings, roads, and other infrastructure, decline in pockets of remnant vegetation and biodiversity, and reduction in water quality. Accurate information on the location and rate of change of the extent of ...

  • Application of thermal remote sensing to delineate groundwater discharge zones

    The paper explores whether thermal anomalies at the surface identified by remote sensing allow for the delineation of groundwater discharge zones. The methodology is based on the principle that in shallow groundwater systems, upward fluxes of deep groundwater discharge reduces seasonal temperature variation in layers close to and at the surface. Thermal anomalies were identified by Landsat data ...
