Remote Sensing Techniques in Monitoring Post-Fire Effects and Patterns of Forest Recovery in Boreal Forest Regions: A Review

Thuan Chu, Xulin Guo
2013 Remote Sensing  
The frequency and severity of forest fires, coupled with changes in spatial and temporal precipitation and temperature patterns, are likely to severely affect the characteristics of forest and permafrost  ...  Forest fires, however, are also an ecological factor in how forest ecosystems form and function, as they affect the rate and characteristics of tree recruitment.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to acknowledge the financial support of the Vietnamese International Education Development scholarship and the Department of Geography and Planning of the University  ...

Modeling the impacts of recent climate change on ecosystem productivity across North America

Zelalem A Mekonnen
The impacts of these changes on land-atmosphere carbon exchange over a wide range of biomes are spatially heterogeneous and uncertain.  ...  In a continental-scale test of model results, spatial anomalies in leaf area indices (LAI) from long-term means modeled during major drought events in 1988 and 2002 agreed well with those in Normalized  ...  Quebec mature boreal black spruce forest (CA-Qfo) CA-Qfo is a boreal black spruce forest site at which we compared 2004, a cooler year, with 2005, a warmer year.  ...

Remote sensing-based analysis of land cover detrimental for ecosystem services in fragile lands of Ethiopia

Thomas Koellner, Christopher Conrad, Jentsch Anke, Franz Schmid, Heike Feldhaar
2015 unpublished
Ethiopia was chosen for the case studies due to the ongoing pressure on fragile lands of the country which is triggered by population growth, large-scale agricultural land acquisition and problems arising  ...  In Chapter 3, the trends in Prosopis juliflora invasion of the Awash basin of Ethiopia were mapped using Landsat ETM + and ASTER images for the years 2000, 2005, 2010 and 2013, and potential impacts on  ...  or LUCIA (e.g. , with the explicit inclusion of longer time scales and broader spatial scales is required in order to assess the impact of P. juliflora on ecosystem services at the landscape scale.  ...
