Remote Sensing Technologies Applied to Wetlands presents the challenges and opportunities relating to the restoration of freshwater and estuarine wetlands in natural, agricultural and urban environments due to a range of contributing factors, including climate change and human and industrial factors. The author uses his own pioneering research to show how remote sensing techniques can be applied to these key areas of biodiversity. Through descriptions of the latest techniques in remote sensing, this book covers the existing vacuum surrounding the study of salt marshes and wetlands through a technical, but easy to follow narrative that includes successful, scenario-based case studies.
Scientists and masters and doctorates students studying wetlands and remote sensing will find this to be an ideal resource.
- Presents applied innovation, including actual documentation and scientific advances of remote sensing in wetlands
- Provides the current and latest remote sensing techniques and shows how they have advanced the field of research in wetlands
- Includes descriptions of new technologies of remote sensing which can then be translated to other areas
