A Review on Applications of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in Water Resources and Flood Risk Management
Water is one of the most critical natural resources that maintain the ecosystem and support people's daily life. Pressures on water resources and disaster management are rising primarily due to the unequal spatial and ...
Modeling of Alpine Grassland Cover Based on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Technology and Multi-Factor Methods: A Case Study in the East of Tibetan Plateau, China
Grassland cover and its temporal changes are key parameters in the estimation and monitoring of ecosystems and their functions, especially via remote sensing. However, the most suitable model for estimating grassland cover ...
Estimation of Snow Depth over the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau Based on AMSR-E and MODIS Data
Snow cover over the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) plays an important role in climate, hydrological, and ecological systems. Currently, passive microwave remote sensing is the most efficient way to monitor snow depth on ...
Characterizing Variability of Solar Irradiance in San Antonio, Texas Using Satellite Observations of Cloudiness
Since the main attenuation of solar irradiance reaching the earth's surface is due to clouds, it has been hypothesized that global horizontal irradiance attenuation and its temporal variability at a given location could ...
