  • VIP-BP model for retrieving chlorophyll a concentration in the river by using remote sensing data

    Chlorophyll a (Chla) is an important indicator of phytoplankton biomass in waters, and its concentration can reflect the degree of eutrophication. This paper is aimed to develop a highly accurate and universally applicable retrieval model for the concentration of Chla in rivers using remote sensing data. Taking the middle and lower reaches of the Han River as the study area, the Chla retrieval ...

  • Mobile sensors about to conquer Lithuania – successful MARWIS test

    Lithuania is divided into 10 regions (districts): Alytus, Kaunas, Klaipėda, Marijampolė, Panevėžys, Šiauliai, Tauragė, Telšiai, Utena and Vilnius. All of these should be equipped with our latest mobile road sensor technology to support winter services and make their jobs more environmentally friendly. A region is already taking part: From beginning 2016 on, Utena ...

  • Hydrological model parameterization using NDVI values to account for the effects of land cover change on the rainfall–runoff response

    Classic rainfall–runoff models usually use historical data to estimate model parameters and mean values of parameters are considered for predictions. However, due to climate changes and human effects, model parameters change temporally. To overcome this problem, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) derived from remotely sensed data was used in this study to investigate the effect of ...

  • 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, ...

  • Satellite analysis to identify changes and drivers of CyanoHABs dynamics in Lake Taihu

    A long-term satellite-based analysis was performed to assess the impact of environmental factors on cyanobacterial harmful blooms (CyanoHABs) dynamics in a typical shallow lake, Lake Taihu. A sub-pixel approach (algae pixel-growing algorithm) was used with 13 years of MOderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data to evaluate changes in bloom extension, initiation date, duration, ...

  • The spatiotemporal patterns of surface soil moisture in Northeast China based on remote sensing products

    Northeast China (NEC) has become one of China's most obvious examples of climate change because of its rising warming rate of 0.35 °C/10 years. As the indicator of climate change, the dynamic of surface soil moisture (SSM) has not been assessed yet. We investigated the spatiotemporal dynamics of SSM in NEC using a 32-year SSM product and found the following. (1) SSM displayed the ...

  • Scottish snow cover dependence on the North Atlantic Oscillation index

    Forecasting seasonal snow cover is useful for planning resources and mitigating natural hazards. We present a link between the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index and days of snow cover in Scotland between winters beginning from 1875 to 2013. Using broad (5 km resolution), national scale data sets like UK Climate Projections 2009 (UKCP09) to extract nationwide patterns, we support these ...

  • Snow cover mapping using IRS-P6 AWiFS data and the relationships between some climatic factors with snowpack in the northwest of Iran

    In this study, we explored the potential of the multispectral and multi-temporal IRS Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS) data for mapping of the snow cover in the northwest regions of Iran. The AWiFS snow cover maps, based on the unsupervised classification method, were compared with the estimates of snow cover area derived from the moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) images ...

  • 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 ...
