  1. 1. Remote Sensing Based Pre-Season Yellow Rust Early Warning in Oromia, Ethiopia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Chinatsu Endo; [2021]
    Keywords : yellow rust; modeling; prediction; early warning; remote sensing; geography; geographical information systems; GIS; Agriculture and Food Sciences; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Yellow rust (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. Tritici) is a crop disease caused by a fungus that regularly infects wheat and causes yield loss in Ethiopia. The disease has a significant impact on the country’s crop production, food security, health, and socioeconomic well-being. READ MORE

  2. 2. Using remote sensing and land abandonment as a proxy for long-term human out-migration. A Case Study: Al-Hassakeh Governorate, Syria

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Berit Mohr; [2021]
    Keywords : geography; GIS; remote sensing; Syria; vegetation indices; land abandonment; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The topic of human migration and displacement has become more important in recent years and will continue to do so in the following decades. Voices become louder claiming that climate change is a driving factor for increased displacement and migration. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. FMCW mmWave Radar for Detection of Pulse, Breathing and Fall within Home Care

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

    Author : Axel Trange; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Countless of elderly people fall and get hurt within their homes, worldwide, every year, and as they can not always reach out for help themselves, they end up helplessly waiting for someone to notice what has occurred. Throughout this work, it is investigated if remote sensing of the mmWave FMCW radar IWR6843AOPEVM can be adopted to detect the incident of falls, and also detect the vital signs of the human subject.

  5. 5. Effects of the 2018 drought on mire productivity in Skogaryd - Evaluation of ground sensors, satellite data and meteorological data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Ines Júlio Alfredo; [2021]
    Keywords : Sentinel 2; Vegetation Indices; Ground Sensors; Drought and Mire; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The drought is a complex meteorological phenomenon associated with low precipitation and low water saturation in atmosphere, soils and plants and can has a great effect on aboveground biomass and change the structure and function of the ecosystems. The droughts also are known to reduce the primary and secondary productivity of vegetation. READ MORE
