  1. 1. Assessing evolution of ice caps in Suðurland, Iceland, in years 1986 - 2014, using multispectral satellite imagery

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Alicja Miodonska; [2019]
    Keywords : remote sensing; multispectral satellite imagery; Landsat; Iceland; glaciers; ice caps; Geography; GIS; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The study focuses on the application of multispectral satellite imageries in glaciological studies. It aims to assess how the Icelandic glaciers have evolved over the last decades (from the 1980s to 2014). The study area covers Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull ice caps located in Suðurland, Iceland. READ MORE

  2. 2. Direct multispectral photogrammetry for UAV-based snow depth measurements

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Kathrin Maier; [2019]
    Keywords : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAV ; snow depth; direct photogrammetry; multispectral imagery; cryosphere;

    Abstract : Due to the changing climate and inherent atypically occurring meteorological events in the Arctic regions, more accurate snow quality predictions are needed in order to support the Sámi reindeer herding communities in northern Sweden that struggle to adapt to the rapidly changing Arctic climate. Spatial snow depth distribution is a crucial parameter not only to assess snow quality but also for multiple environmental research and social land use purposes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Paleoglaciological study of the Ahlmannryggen, Borgmassivet and Kirwanveggen nunatak ranges, Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica, using WorldView imagery

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Taisiya Dymova; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Paleoglaciological reconstructions based on glacial geological and geomorphological traces are used to test and constrain numerical models of ice sheet extent and dynamics. MAGIC-DML (“Mapping, Measuring and Modelling Antarctic Geomorphology and Ice Change in Dronning Maud Land”) project is trying to reconstruct the timing and pattern of ice surface elevation changes since the mid-Pliocene across western Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica.

  4. 4. Forest stand delineation through remote sensing and Object-Based Image Analysis

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Samhällsbyggnad, GIS

    Author : José Antonio Ortega-García; [2018]
    Keywords : forest stand; stand delineation; LiDAR; ASTER; OBIA; GIS; remote sensing; segmentation; canopy heigh model; forestry; Navarra; OBIA; LiDAR; ASTER; segmentación; rodal; forestal; SIG; teledetección;

    Abstract : Forest stand delineation is an essential task of forest management planning which can be time consuming and exposed to subjectivity. The increasing availability of LiDAR data and multispectral imagery offers an opportunity to improve stand delineation by means of remotely-sensed data. READ MORE

  5. 5. Comparison of multi-temporal and multispectral Sentinel-2 and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle imagery for crop type mapping

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Stephania Zabala Ramos; [2017]
    Keywords : classification; Random Forest; precision agriculture; UAV; remote sensing; Micasense; GEM; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Precision Agriculture aims to maximize crop production and the efficiency of land use to meet the increased demand for food while minimizing environmental impact and economic cost of food production. Crop type maps are needed for Precision Agriculture applications and remote sensing techniques are an efficient way to produce this information. READ MORE
