A quantity within the three-volume Remote Sensing guide series, Land assets tracking, Modeling, and Mapping with distant Sensing records the medical and methodological advances that experience taken position over the last 50 years. the opposite volumes within the sequence are Remotely Sensed information Characterization, type, and Accuracies, and Remote Sensing of Water assets, failures, and concrete Studies.
In real guide kind, the chapters within the quantity were conscientiously chosen, geared up, and designed to be self-contained for you to concentrate on a bankruptcy and browse it via with no need to be overly depending on different chapters. This quantity offers entire theoretical and useful insurance of distant sensing of land assets that come with plants and biomass, agricultural croplands, rangelands, phenology and foodstuff safeguard, forests, biodiversity, ecology, land use\land disguise, carbon, and soils.
- Global terrestrial carbon and carbon budgets
- Precision farming
- Agricultural platforms reports and soil studies
- Global croplands, agricultural croplands, and rangelands
- Food safeguard analysis
- Land use and land disguise mapping
- Measuring photosynthesis from space
- Vegetation characterization and above flooring biomass measurements and modeling
- Hyperspectral distant sensing
- Ecological studies
- Tropical wooded area characterization
- Habitat mapping and monitoring
In a really sensible method, the e-book demonstrates the event, software, equipment, and versions utilized in learning a wide range of land purposes. thought of magnum opus at the topic, the three-volume Remote Sensing Handbook is edited by means of Dr. Prasad S. Thenkabail, a popular foreign professional in distant sensing technological know-how, GIScience, and spatial sciences, with contributions from the various best possible major international specialists, the instruction manual supplies a data base at the evolution distant sensing technological know-how, state of the art know-how, and a destiny imaginative and prescient for the field.
