Locusts and remote sensing: a review

Alexandre V. Latchininsky
2013 Journal of Applied Remote Sensing  
Decades of research revealed very complex bioecology of locusts. They exist in two, inter-convertible and density-dependent states, or "phases."  ...  Satellite data are increasingly used for monitoring and forecasting two locust species, the desert and the Australian plague locust.  ...  Ramesh Sivanpillai, University of Wyoming, and two anonymous reviewers for their thoughtful suggestions and constructive criticism which helped to improve the paper.  ...

Cannabis sativa L. Spectral Discrimination and Classification Using Satellite Imagery and Machine Learning

Fatih Bicakli, Gordana Kaplan, Abduldaem S. Alqasemi
2022 Agriculture  
Here in this study, we aim to: (1) offer a literature review on the studies investigating Cannabis sativa L. using remote sensing data; (2) define the spectral features of cannabis fields and other plants  ...  Remote sensing has the ability to monitor areas for cannabis growing. However, in the scientific literature, there is relatively little information on the spectral features of cannabis.  ...  Acknowledgments: The authors acknowledge the Planet research program for allowing us to obtain the necessary satellite imagery for research purposes.  ...
