Fluvial Remote Sensing for Science and Management (Advancing by Patrice Carbonneau,Hervé Piégay

By Patrice Carbonneau,Hervé Piégay

This ebook deals a entire evaluation of growth within the basic sector of fluvial distant sensing with a particular specialise in its capability contribution to river administration. The e-book highlights a variety of tough concerns through contemplating a number of spatial and temporal scales with views from a number of disciplines. The ebook begins with an outline of the technical development resulting in new administration purposes for quite a number box contexts and spatial scales. subject matters contain color imagery, multi-spectral and hyper-spectral imagery, video, photogrammetry and LiDAR. The booklet then discusses administration functions corresponding to precise, community scale, making plans, land-use swap modelling at catchment scales, characterisation of channel reaches (riparian plants, geomorphic good points) in either spatial and temporal dimensions, fish habitat evaluate, circulate dimension, tracking river recovery and upkeep and, the appraisal of human perceptions of riverscapes.

Key Features:
• a particular specialize in administration functions in a interval of accelerating calls for on managers to symbolize river gains and their evolution at diversified spatial scales
• An integration throughout all scales of images with a transparent dialogue of either floor established and airborne images
• contains a wide-range of environmental problems
• assurance of state-of-the-art technology
• Contributions from top researchers within the field
