    Abstract : The identification of the characteristics of drought are of great importance in water resources planning and management. This study explored the characteristics of drought at Limpopo River Basin (LRB) from 1918 to 2018. READ MORE

  3. 3. Deep Learning for Iceberg Detection in Satellite Images

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Shuzhi Dong; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The application of satellite images for ship and iceberg monitoring is essential in many ways in Arctic waters. Even though the detection of ships and icebergs in images is well established using Geoscience techniques, the discrimination between those two target classes still represents a challenge for operational scenarios.

  5. 5. Using Sentinel-2 Satellite Images to Estimate Traits of Forage Grasslands

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Agricultural Research for Northern Sweden

    Author : Niklas Zeiner; [2021]
    Keywords : Remote sensing; Forage grasslands; Sentinel-2; Dry matter yield; Canopy average height; Total leaf chlorophyll content; Partial least squares; Support vector machines;

    Abstract : In this project, regression models based on data from field measurements and spectral information extracted from satellite imagery were used to estimate traits of forage grasslands; dry matter yield, canopy average height and total leaf chlorophyll. Four fields at SLUs Röbäcksdalen field station were sampled on 22 occasions and a total of 198 samples, including measurement of the highest plant, canopy height, leaf chlorophyll content, canopy spectral reflectance and biomass were collected.
