  1. 1. Cropland and tree cover mapping using Sentinel-2 data in an agroforestry landscape, Burkina Faso

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Ntandokazi Masimula; [2020-06-29]
    Keywords : Sentinel-2; Cropland mask; Tree cover estimation; Burkina Faso; Agroforestry; Random Forest;

    Abstract : Sentinel-2, with high spatial resolution bands and increased number of spectral channels,has provided increased capabilities for vegetation mapping. Cropland masks withinheterogeneous areas such as the Sudano-Sahel zone have become useful for monitoringlandscapes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling gross primary production in semi-arid regions: effects on carbon uptake of intensive agriculture in southern Kenya

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : Physical Geography; Ecosystem Analysis; GPP; Africa; Kenya; Land cover changes; Cropland; Remote sensing; Sentinel-2; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Background and aim: Gross primary production (GPP) is the largest global carbon (C) flux and an important component for counteracting anthropogenic CO2 emissions, understanding vegetation dynamics, and sustaining universal human standards. Africa plays a prominent role in the global C cycle, though our understanding of GPP dynamics is largely hampered by a paucity of ground-based observations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Soil organic carbon prediction using Sentinel-2 data and the LUCAS topsoil database

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Philipp Hansen; [2020]
    Keywords : Sentinel-2 LUCAS topsoil database Soil organic carbon mapping Multispectral data; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Its carbon sink potential as well as soil fertility benefits make organic carbon a soil variable for which reliable quantification methods are sought. This thesis work aims at investigating the possibility of adapting a large soil spectral library to build models for SOC predictions with remotely sensed, multispectral data. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Scalable Approach for Detecting Dumpsites using Automatic Target Recognition with Feature Selection and SVM through Satellite Imagery

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för visuell information och interaktion

    Author : Markus Skogsmo; [2020]
    Keywords : satellite imagery; earth observation; remote sensing; sentinel-2; Copernicus; ESA; global watch center; sentinelhub; support vector machine; big data analysis; big data visualization; detection; classification; automatic target recognition; machine learning; one-class classifier;

    Abstract : Throughout the world, there is a great demand to map out the increasing environmental changes and life habitats on Earth. The vast majority of Earth Observations today, are collected using satellites. READ MORE

  5. 5. Detecting Spruce Bark Beetle Infestations with Satellite Imagery

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Per Emil Hammarlund; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Sveaskog is Swedens largest forest owner, owning 14 percent of the Swedish forest lands. Recently, due to warmer and drier summers as a consequence of climate change, spruce bark beetles have caused damages at a massive scale. READ MORE
