A recently concluded research project called MAMUD investigated how high and moderate resolution satellite imagery can be used for mapping and modeling urban growth and its impact on the hydrology of the urban and suburban environment. The paper focuses on research methods, major findings, and work carried out on the Greater Dublin Area in Ireland.
There is an increasing need for timely, accurate information on the spatial distribution and composition of forest resources. The use of eForest platform as a reference dataset is a new and unique development in the assessment of large-scale, continental forest maps, representing the first attempt to harmonize the data from Member States National Forest Inventories.
How can NASA Earth observations help monitor the way farmers till their fields? In the wake of climate change and greenhouse gas levels increasing in the atmosphere, monitoring tilling practices has become increasingly important. Conventional tillage creates a carbon source, while conservation tillage creates a carbon sink. The need for an efficient and effective means of delineating fields prepared by conservation tillage calls for methodologies using remote sensing.
– Using MERIS and AATSR instruments, Leicester scientists have captured amazing images of a snow-bound UK.
Urban agriculture is as old a pursuit as city living. It encompasses gardens scaled in size from windowsill and greenhouse cultivation to miniature farms with livestock, fish, bees, vineyards, orchards, produce, herb and flower gardens. Now remote sensing satellites are acquiring data to measure and help municipalities integrate this activity into city planning.
