Remote Sensing of Forest Environments: Concepts and Case Studies is designed to meet the needs of a professional audience composed of both practitioners and researchers.

This book is also suitable as a secondary text for graduate-level students in Forestry, Environmental Science, Geography, Engineering, and Computer Science.

The book provides readers with a state-of-the-art synopsis of the current methods and applied applications employed in remote sensing of the world's forests. This book introduces a series of case studies that exemplify the ways in which remotely sensed data are operationally used, as an element of the decision-making process, and in the.

This section’s aim is to advance basic and applied remote sensing of forests. The section is committed to publishing timely, high quality manuscripts that become immediately pertinent to every scientist in the field — in short, to be the “go to” journal for remote sensing of forests.

Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is CHF (Swiss Francs).

Remote sensing is the acquisition of information about an object or phenomenon without making physical contact with the object and thus in contrast to on-site observation, especially the Earth.

Remote sensing is used in numerous fields, including geography, land surveying and most Earth science disciplines (for example, hydrology, ecology, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geology); it.

Arturo Sanchez-Azofeifa, Mark Kachmar, Margaret Kalacska and Stephen Hamilton -- Remote Sensing for Sustainability introduces the current state of the art remote sensing knowledge integral for monitoring the world’s natural resources and environments, managing exposure to natural disasters and man-made risks, and helping understand the sustainability and productivity of.

Remote sensing systems, which in the past have already been successfully used in monitoring and detection of rural forest damage, can be adopted to monitor vegetation, and in particular trees, in cities although there is no coverage of large areas with a single : Guido Staub.

Remote Sensing of Environment - An Interdisciplinary Journal. Remote Sensing of Environment (RSE) serves the Earth observation community with the publication of results on the theory, science, applications, and technology of remote sensing studies. Thoroughly interdisciplinary, RSE publishes on terrestrial, oceanic and atmospheric sensing.

Remote Sensing of Forest Environments: Concepts and Case Studies is an edited volume intended to provide readers with a state-of-the-art synopsis of the current methods and applied applications employed in remote sensing the world's forests.

This volume presents applications of remote sensing in urban environments and coastal zones, including the use of remote sensing in city planning (urban expansion, light pollution, air quality, etc.), observation of the properties of ocean color, the study of coastal dynamics (identifying coastlines and estimating sediment balances, etc.) and.

The remote sensing of forests has reached a developmental stage that allows practitioners to expend the largest proportion of project efforts on information generation, rather than data preparation.

The significant progress that has been realised in the remote sensing of forests in recent years is related to the three linked developments of:Cited by: 2. The book is an invitation to rethink processing routines in place for Earth observation data.

As such, the intended readers of the book are remote sensing experts being new to command line processing or having already some experience with this technology. Data on LAI from the tropics is sparse as compared to temperate and boreal environments.

Satellite remote sensing offers an excellent means of determining LAI on a regional, sub-continental and. Potential Projects for Special Topics, Honours, Masters & Doctoral Students. The RSRC provides a collaborative and supportive research environment that accumulates and shares knowledge and technical experience, as well as enabling development of professional networks.

This book starts where the already published book “Remote Sensing and GIS for Ecologists” ends: more complex approaches like Deep Learning, active data sets and multi-sensor approaches such as image fusion are covered as well as different software environments (SNAP, R, Python, Java Script).

All chapters work again on the same data set. Book Description. While frequently used in temperate environments, hyperspectral sensors and data are still a novelty in the tropics. Exploring the potential of hyperspectral remote sensing for assessing ecosystem characteristics, Hyperspectral Remote Sensing of Tropical and Sub-Tropical Forests focuses on the complex and unique set of challenges involved in using this technology and the data.

Abstract. Quantitative remote sensing is an inevitable trend in the application of remote sensing in the 21st century.

Its core role is to establish a quantitative relationship between the electromagnetic spectrum and the information obtained by the sensor and then use electromagnetic wave information to quantitatively detect all kinds of surface characteristic parameters.
