Book: “Satellite Remote Sensing and the Management of Natural Resources” workshop on Remote Sensing of Ecosystem Functioning. by Remote Sensing Biodiversity | | news, Animal Movement and Remote Sensing Analysis (AniMove) this year at Yale, USA.

Remote Sensing for Sustainable Forest Management reviews the literature and provides the tools for understanding and choosing remote sensing solutions for management problems.

The book presents methods and operational examples of forest change detection, forest defoliation monitoring, forest classification, and forest growth modeling.

Satellite remote sensing, Landsat time series particularly, proved to be an effective tool for long-term forest health monitoring (Banskota et al., ), disturbance detection (Huang et al., Author: Nathalie Pettorelli. The book first discusses terminology and principals behind remote sensing data and analyses (thus assumes no prior technical knowledge of satellite remote sensing systems and products) and then demonstrates how the combined application of remote sensing and ecological knowledge can help to address a wide array of current natural resource.

This Special Issue will comprise a selection of research papers reporting scientific advances in the application of cost-effective, integrated and transferable remote sensing based frameworks to ecosystem function assessment, within the perspectives of enhancing monitoring and reporting capacities of managing authorities.

The accurate measurement of ecosystem biomass is of great importance in scientific, resource management and energy sectors. In particular, biomass is a direct measurement of carbon storage within an ecosystem and of great importance for carbon cycle science and carbon emission mitigation.

Remote Sensing is the most accurate tool for global biomass Cited by: Remote sensing plays an important role in the study of complex environmental interactions between natural and social systems, and has been used widely to quantify and map ecosystem properties and functions and infer ecosystem processes through a combination of existing instruments and data (Chopra et al.,Ustin et al.,Chambers et Cited by: Dear Colleagues, As highlighted in recent issues of Remote Sensing and other journals, remote sensing has evolved as a tool of choice to monitor and assess social–ecological systems systematically, encompassing the natural and managed environment.

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.

This book is targeted for scientists and managers interested in using remote sensing in the study or management of aquatic coastal environments. With only limited discussion of optics and theory presented in the book, such researchers might benefit from the detailed presentations of aquatic spectral signatures, and to operational management issues.

Applications and Research Using Remote Sensing for Rangeland Management E. Raymond Hunt, Jr., James H. Everitt, Jerry C. Ritchie, M. Susan Moran, D. Terrance Booth, Gerald L. Anderson, Patrick E. Clark, and Mark S. Seyfried Abstract Rangelands are grasslands, shrublands, and savannas used by wildlife for habitat and livestock in order to produce.

The application of re mote sensing techniques to ecological studies has increased in recent years. Nevertheless, the poten ti al contribution of remote sensing to the study of ecology in general, and to wildlife and ecosystem management specifically, has yet to be realized.

The multi-authored book is intended for ecologists, resource managers, policymakers and legislators, etc. Part I includes 3 chapters giving a general description of the need for landscape-scale analysis to support forest ecosystem research and management, and discussing current challenges in the development of remote sensing and GIS (geographical information systems).

Overall ecosystem health and forest structure will be correlated to remote sensing observations, to calibrate ecosystem models, refine management based on remote sensing and improve projections of future forest structure. An outcome of the project will be to construct a model of ecosystem response to future climate change impacts such as.

WETLAND AND WATER RESOURCE MODELING AND ASSESSMENT A Watershed Perspective-This is a book about the methods and geospatial techniques for modeling and assessing wetlands and water resources at the watershed theme of the book, wetland and water resource modeling and assessment, is an active field of research that.

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.

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. Applications of GIS/Remote Sensing in Water Resources Planning and Management Water is a resource taken for granted in many parts of the world.

Ecosystem management is a process that aims to conserve major ecological services and restore natural resources while meeting the socioeconomic, political, and cultural needs of current and future generations.

The principal objective of ecosystem management is the efficient maintenance and socially appropriate use of natural resources. It is a multifaceted and holistic. About this book. Remote Sensing of Wetlands provides a thorough introduction to the use of remotely sensed data for wetland classification and mapping, as well as information on the latest technological advancements detailed by top scientists in the wetland classification and mapping field.

It presents methods readily applicable to real-world challenges. the use of remote sensing to inform forest science, management, and policy. Remote sensing and scaling approaches To support sustainable management of forest resources, we need to understand the broader implications of our local-scale knowledge of ecological processes.

Most any scaling approach will. The journal 'Remote Sensing Applications: Society and Environment' (RSASE)is part of the Remote Sensing of Environment family of journals.
