ABSTRACT BOOK 25 Years of Progress in Radar Altimetry Workshop September Ponta Delgada Azores Last update: 19 October Private forests have a crucial role in maintaining the functioning of the Indonesian forest ecosystem especially because of the continuous degradation of natural forests. Private forests are a part of social forestry which becomes a tool for the Indonesian government to reduce carbon dioxide (CO 2) emission by 26% by The United Nations Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation Cited by: 3.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Canadian remote sensing contribution to understanding global change. [Waterloo, Ont.]: University of Waterloo, Dept. of Geography, The main contribution should be the remote sensing component, rather than investigation of an environmental problem in which remote sensing data or techniques do not play a major role.

Papers dealing with single study sites are welcome, although the sites should be representative of broad conditions suitable for drawing conclusions of interest. Published Atmosphere Land Water Videos.

The Island Named After a Satellite. It measures about half the size of a football field and it is so small that you cannot see it on Google maps. This barren bit of rock off the coast of Canada has an unusual namesake: the Landsat 1 satellite. Hear about the discovery in the words of the.

Remote Sensing (ISSN ) is a peer-reviewed open access journal about the science and application of remote sensing technology, and is published semi-monthly online by MDPI. Remote Sensing is affiliated to The Remote Sensing Society of Japan (RSSJ) and members receive a discount on the article processing charge.

The chief "selling point" for some systems is the high resolution their satellites provide. The chart below lists by country nearly all the active and planned land/sea observing satellites through that are either privately owned or operated by.

The term ‘remote sensing’ is broadly defined as the technique(s) for collecting images or other data about an object from measurements made at a distance from the object, and can refer, for instance, to satellite imagery, to aerial photographs or to ocean bathymetry explored from a ship using echo sounder by: In addition, the manuscripts must employ one of the following remote sensing data types: Optical, thermal, hyperspectral, active and passive microwave acquired by either airborne or spaceborne remote sensing platforms, dealing with wildfires.

The topics of interest include, but not limited to: Comprehending of the pre-fire conditions. A Strategy for Active Remote Sensing Amid Increased Demand for Spectrum describes the threats, both current and future, to the effective use of the electromagnetic spectrum required for active remote sensing.

This report offers specific recommendations for protecting and making effective use of the spectrum required for active remote sensing. Foody, Giles M., and Peter M. Atkinson, eds.

The journal’s focus includes remote sensing of the atmosphere, biosphere, cryosphere and the terrestrial earth, as well as human modifications to the earth : Jennie Levine Knies.

Highlights Multispectral RS allows geologists a qualitative assessment of surface composition. Hyperspectral remote sensing allows mapping surface mineralogy. Data integration (hyperspectral, geophysics, geochemistry) reveals proxies to P-T trajectories and fluid pathways in alteration systems.

Standards and protocols are lacking in geologic remote sensing. Data continuity is essential in long Cited by: 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.

“Global Forest Watch’s ability to take advantage of Landsat imagery to produce a global forest monitoring platform highlights why remote sensing has become such a revolutionary technology.

The imagery has achieved a state-of-the-art quality—NASA’s Landsat data is delivered in 30x30meter squares and has been for the past 40 years.

Articles can cover local to global scales and can be directly relevant to the Canadian, or equally important, the international community.

The international editorial board provides expertise in a wide range of remote sensing theory and applications. Articles can be published in English or French. Our work focuses on research and discovery at the interface of macroecology, conservation, and global change.

It starts with discovery but is about more than that - we are looking for ways to use discovery to improve conservation prospects for biological diversity during the current period of rapid human-induced climate change and habitat loss and improve predictions of vector borne disease.
