  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

    Abstract  Improvements in remote sensing technologies and the use of geographic information system (GIS), are increasingly allowing us to develop indicators that can be used to monitor and assess ecosystem condition and change at multiple scales. This paper presents global- and regional-level indicators developed by the World Resources Institute and collaborating partners using remote ...


  • Remote sensing and geographic information system for appraisal of salt-affected soils in India

    Received for publication January 23, 2009. Quantification of the nature, extent, and spatial distribution of salt-affected soils (SAS) for India and the world is essential for planning and implementing reclamation programs in a timely and cost-effective manner for sustained crop production. The national extent of SAS for India over the last four decades was assessed by conventional and remote ...

  • LG Sonic to automatically predict algal blooms

    LG Sonic will make use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to further develop the software algorithm which will make it possible to predict algal blooms based on water quality data automatically. Furthermore, it will provide detailed information about the intensity and the impact of the algal bloom on the ecosystem of the water body. The updated algorithm will be implemented in LG Sonic’s ...

  • The Boulder Atmospheric Observatory

    Abstract The Boulder Atmospheric Observatory (BAO) is a unique research facility for studying the planetary boundary layer and for testing and calibrating atmospheric sensors. The facility includes a 300 m tower instrumented with fast- and slow-response sensors, a variety of remote sensing systems, and a real-time processing and display capability that greatly reduces analysis time for ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Agricultural biomass monitoring on watersheds based on remotely sensed data

    There is a close quality relationship between the harmful levels of all three drought indicator groups (meteorological, hydrological and agricultural). However, the numerical scale of the relationships between them is unclear and the conversion of indicators is unsolved. Different areas or an area with different forms of drought cannot be compared. For example, from the evaluation of ...
