Description Remote Sensing for Tropical Ecosystem Management EPUB

The sustainable use and management of important tropical coastal ecosystems (mangrove forests, seagrass beds and coral reefs) cannot be done without understanding the direct and indirect impacts of man. The ecosystem's resilience and recovery capacity following such impacts must be determined. The efficacy of mitigation measures must also be considered.

Remote sensing and geographic Cited by: Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Grassland Ecosystem" Special Issue Editors in order to ensure sustainable alpine pasture management. Nutrient rich grasslands and herbaceous vegetation play an important role in determining the grazing patterns of livestock, distribution of herbivore population, interlinkages with other trophic levels, and.

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 comple.

Remote sensing has become an important tool for the management of the marine environment. Currently, researchers are able to map several important facets of the marine environment from space. This includes chlorophyll- a, ocean salinity, and sea surface by: 1.

Under threat from natural and human disturbance, tropical dry forests are the most endangered ecosystem in the tropics, yet they rarely receive the scientific or conservation attention they deserve.

In a comprehensive overview, Tropical Dry Forests in the Americas: Ecology, Conservation, and Management examines new approaches for data sampling and analysis using remote sensing technology.


Recent advances in remote-sensing technology and the processing of remote-sensing data through geographic information systems (GIS) present ecologists and resource managers with a tremendously valuable tool -- but only if they are able to understand its capabilities and capture its Sensing and GIS in Ecosystem Management identifies and articulates current and emerging.

Effective mangrove management is vital via acquiring knowledge on forest distribution and changes to establish protection policies. This chapter will elaborate technically how GIS and RS were utilized to identify, map, and monitor changes of mangroves ecosystem in Malaysia.

Indonesian Remote Sensing Summary. Tropenbos and Wageningen Agricultural University has conducted a joint research program since to solve the problem of cloud cover over the Indonesian rainforest by the advent of microwave remote sensing.

Thus far their research has proved successful in identifying logging roads, canopy gaps and skid roads. 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 measurements because of the ability to measure Cited by: Trends in Management of Tropical Forests: Application of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System: /ch Forests are important plant communities that consist of trees and other woody vegetation that performs life-supporting functions on Earth.

This chapterAuthor: Jacinta U. Ezenwenyi, Onyekachi Chukwu. May 11,  · This blogpost will explain what the important ecosystem variables are, how remote sensing can be applied to measuring biodiversity and which biodiversity indices could be used in. "This remarkable book, Coral Reef Remote Sensing: A Guide for Mapping, Monitoring and Management, for the first time documents the full range of remote sensing systems, methodologies and measurement capabilities essential to understanding more fully the status and changes over time of coral reefs globally.

Such information is essential and. 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.

Feb 27,  · The book “Remote Sensing and GIS for Ecologists – Using Open Source software” provides the background as well as working examples how to apply remote sensing within ecological research. All practical examples in this book rely on OpenSource software and freely available data sets.

Tropical landscapes are, in general, a mosaic of pasture, agriculture, and forest undergoing various stages of succession. Forest succession is comprised of continuous structural changes over time and results in increases in aboveground biomass (AGB).

New remote sensing methods, including sensors, image processing, statistical methods, and uncertainty evaluations, are constantly being Cited by: Remote sensing is the collection of data without coming into physical contact with the target.

In the field of earth, atmosphere and ocean observation, remote sensing generally refers to the use of imaging sensor technologies by ways of aircraft, satellites, ships, and buoys. Nov 01,  · Remote sensing, the science of obtaining information via noncontact recording, has swept the fields of ecology, biodiversity and conservation (EBC).

With the application of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information systems (GIS), the paper emphasizes the methodology of integrating information technology and a scientific basis to support ecosystem-based management. First, a systematic integration framework is developed and the major functionality of eachCited by: 2.It explores the potential of remote-sensing/GIS technologies to address those needs, examining: the need for landscape-scale analysis to support forest ecosystem research and management current challenges in the development of remote-sensing/GIS applications case studies of different forest regions in the United States the potential for further.Consequently, the book contains some biological and sociological informa-tion, but it is tailored to represent those areas closest to the topic of ecosystem management.

However, the book is small, given the topic it purports to cover, and we fully expect it to be only the starting point for learning about ecosystem management.
