Cropland Mapping Using Fusion of Multi-Sensor Data in a Complex Urban/Peri-Urban Area

Eunice Nduati, Yuki Sofue, Akbar Matniyaz, Jong Park, Wei Yang, Akihiko Kondoh
2019 Remote Sensing  
Image spatiotemporal fusion provides a means for frequent mapping and continuous monitoring of complex UPA in a dynamic landscape.  ...  High population density and competing land use demands lend a spatiotemporally dynamic and heterogeneous nature to urban and peri-urban croplands.  ...  The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's (JAXA's) High Resolution Land Use and Land Cover map of Japan (HRLULC Ver.18.03) is a 30 m land cover map of Japan, generated using multi-temporal, multi-source  ...

Mapping Irrigated Areas of Ghana Using Fusion of 30 m and 250 m Resolution Remote-Sensing Data

Murali Krishna Gumma, Prasad S. Thenkabail, Fujii Hideto, Andrew Nelson, Venkateswarlu Dheeravath, Dawuni Busia, Arnel Rala
2011 Remote Sensing  
Extensive field campaigns to help in better classification and validation of irrigated areas using high (30 m ) to very high (<5 m) resolution remote sensing data that are fused with multi temporal data  ...  This was because of the uncertainties involved in factors such as: (a) absence of shallow irrigated area statistics in GIDA statistics, (b) non-clarity in the irrigated areas in its use, under-development  ...  This paper is not internally reviewed by the US Geological Survey (USGS). Hence, the opinions expressed here are those of the authors and not those of USGS.  ...

Global Croplands and their Importance for Water and Food Security in the Twenty-first Century: Towards an Ever Green Revolution that Combines a Second Green Revolution with a Blue Revolution

Prasad S. Thenkabail
2010 Remote Sensing  
In an increasingly food insecure world, there is a critical need for us to have a comprehensive understanding of global croplands.  ...  Indeed, cropland areas have even begun to decrease in some countries with important food contribution (e.g., USA) due to increasing demand of fertile arable lands for alternative uses such as bio-fuels  ...  All of this took substantial amount of time and coordination. Here I want to thank Elvis Wang, Managing Editor, of the journal  ...

Characterizing multi-decadal vegetative greenness and land use dynamics across Canadian urban areas using satellite remote sensing

Agatha Czekajlo
Second, using unmixed fractions and land cover information, I derived a dynamic land use classification scheme and applied it across Canadian peri-urban areas to quantify multi-decadal land use transitions  ...  During the same time, 47% of Canadian peri-urban areas experienced an increase in urban use, converting about 2,000 km² of natural and agriculture uses each.  ...  Additionally, the application of the data products developed in this thesis across multiple spatial scales and/or types of communities (e.g. urban, peri-urban, and rural) can provide greater insight into  ...

A bacterial bioreporter panel to assay the cytotoxicity of atmospheric particulate matter

Nivi Kessler, James J. Schauer, Sharon Yagur-Kroll, Sahar Melamed, Ofir Tirosh, Shimshon Belkin, Yigal Erel
2012 Atmospheric Environment  
A total of 386 measurement data sets were used to construct the predictive mass extinction coefficients for the sizeresolved particles using regression analysis.  ...  Although the synergy algorithm derived AOT appears more scattered than the respective MODIS product in many cases, it performs better in croplands, broadleaved, urban and bare areas.  ...  The second class, whose pollution degree is much more serious than the first class, contains 18 stations distributed in urban, peri-urban and southern suburban areas.  ...

Tomorrow's healthy society - research priorities for foods and diets

AK Bock, P Maragkoudakis, J Wollgast, S Caldeira, A Czimbalmos, M Rzychon, B Atzel, F Ulberth
2015 European Journal of Public Health  
Acknowledgements We would like to thank the members of the Steering Committee for their valuable time and input in the study:  ...  urban, peri-urban and rural forms of agriculture and food production up to large-scale metropolitan production.  ...  In general, potential savings on the cropland area for food production, due to yield increases, are counteracted by a combination of population growth and dietary change.  ...
