The Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA) was an intensive scientific investigation of the tropical rainforest of Brazil and portions of adjacent countries. LBA used intensive remote-sensing techniques and ground-based experiments to investigate the atmosphere-biosphere-hydrosphere dynamics of this large tropical region. The exploitation of natural resources for timber production, fuelwood use and conversion to agricultural land is increasing to such an extent that the sustainable use of many areas of the world is in doubt. This paper examines three decades of freely available Landsat satellite images of the northeastern part of Nigeria using a supervised classification based technique to create Cited by: 8.

Second, monitoring data can allow validation of model predictions, which mayor may not accurately describe climate–health relationships (Davis et al., ).Predictions of health states may be generated either from retrospective data onclimate variations in time, or with geography, and these can then be comparedwith health monitoring data.

Potential of Landsat MSS data for wood resources monitoring by Ulf Hellde n Download PDF EPUB FB2

More recently, several researchers have concentrated on evaluating the potential of satellites data on land use classification, monitoring the land use or quantifying and analyzing land use changes.

Yuan et al. [ 18 ] used multitemporal Landsat TM data to map and monitor land cover change in the seven-county Twin Cities Metropolitan Area of Cited by: 9. Landsat Multispectral Scanner (MSS)/Thematic Mapper (TM) data have been used during the fi rst decade, and the nationwide forest cover and waste- land mapping have been carried out.

Source: USGS Landsat Mission Website The Landsat project will begin processing MSS data on the Level-1 Product Generation System (LPGS) on Septem This is the same system that creates TM and ETM+ products, and there will be increased geometric accuracy in many of the MSS scenes.

EVALUATION OF LANDSAT THEMATIC MAPPER DATA FOR REFORESTATION ASSESSMENT BY ARUN KUMAR BANSAL (Physics), University of Rajasthan, Member of Indian Forest Service, A THESIS SUBMITTED IN PARTIAL FULFILMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF MASTER OF SCIENCE in THE FACULTY OF.

Monitoring large forest areas is presently feasible with satellite remote sensing as opposed to time-consuming and expensive ground surveys as alternative. This study evaluated, for the first time, the potential of using freely available medium resolution (30 m) Landsat time series data for deforestation monitoring in tropical rainforests of Kalimantan, Indonesia, at sub-annual time Cited by: 2.

Return to Landsat Science Team Overview Landsat Science Team members are national and international leaders in land remote sensing, and evaluate operational and data management strategies to meet the requirements of all Landsat users, including the needs of policy makers at all levels of page lists of journal articles, book sections, reports, and conference.

Additionally, the majority of the NALC MSS data had also been terrain corrected. The Landsat scenes selected for the national Land Cover Trends mapping effort were spaced at semi-regular, 6 to 8 years intervals (circa, and ).

Landsat data used to develop the Land Cover Trends dataset. The exploitation of natural resources for timber production, fuelwood use and conversion to agricultural land is increasing to such an extent that the sustainable use of many areas of the world is in doubt.

This paper examines three decades of freely ava. The MMFR is located in the State of Perak in Peninsular Malaysia. Timber extraction activity is concentrated in % of the forest and limited timber extraction is carried out in % of the forest while % is totally free from any human induced forestry activity ().The management strategy of the MMFR is implemented based on a 10 year working plan formulated and Cited by: Soil is one of the most important natural resources covering a large area of the land surface.

Soil plays a vital role in biosphere processes, such as energy balance, hydrology, biochemistry, and biological productivity.

It supports plants that supply foods, fibers, drugs, and some other human needs. Conversely, desert regions include about one third of earth lands and these regions Cited by: 2.

Work by Congalton (a) on Landsat MSS data from three areas of varying spatial diversity (agriculture, range, and forest) showed a positive influence as much as 30 pixels ( km) away.

More recent work by Pugh and Congalton () using Landsat TM data in a forested environment showed similar issues with spatial autocorrelation.

The main objective of this review is to summarize previous and current contributions of remote sensing to the survey of mountain pine beetle impacts.

The potential and limits of remotely sensed data for the detection and mapping of mountain pine beetle impacts, over a range of attack stages, are identified and by: The pace, magnitude, and scale of human alterations of Earth’s land surface are unprecedented in human history.

Consequently, land-cover and land-use data are central to such Agenda 21 issues as combating deforestation, managing sustainable settlement growth, and protecting the quality and supply of water resources ().In light of the human impacts on the landscape, there.

Joining Landsat and In Situ Data Sets. Both the WQP and LAGOS‐NE include sample latitude and longitude. Joining the in situ data to Landsat requires using this location data to determine which sites are visible by Landsat, gather spatially averaged reflectance, and match water quality observations to temporally coincident by: 2.

Engng. and Remote Sensing.This research focuses on the application of remote sensing and geospatial technology to address natural resource and agricultural problems in arid regions of the world. Our research efforts will 1) develop a better understanding of data produced by satellite and aircraft remote sensing systems, 2) investigate the problems of using conventional remote sensing techniques in arid lands, 3.[7] This study uses a combination of Landsat ETM+ and SRTM data, similar to the method introduced in Simard et al., to produce landscape‐scale maps and estimates of mangrove cover, height, biomass and C for the entire coast of Mozambique.
