  1. 1. Detecting bark beetle damage with Sentinel-2 multi-temporal data in Sweden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Shuo Yang; [2019]
    Keywords : Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis; Remote Sensing; Bark Beetle; Insect Detection; Sentinel-2; Forest Health; Maximum Likelihood; Random Forest; Spectral Signature; Vegetation Indices; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The European spruce bark beetle is considered as one of the most destructive forest insects to Norway spruce trees in Europe. Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of bark beetle outbreaks. It is therefore of vital importance to detect the bark beetle outbreaks and take it under control to prevent further damages. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Humanitarian Satellites : a remote sensing approach to built-up area estimation in refugee camps

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Riccardo Biella; [2019]
    Keywords : Remote Sensing; Humaitarian; Sentinel 2; Built-Up Area Estimation; IBI; NDBI; Digitization; Time Series; Earth and Environmental Sciences; Science General;

    Abstract : The determination of the built-up area of a refugee camp is an important task as it can be used for estimating the population. While high resolution satellite imagery can be costly, since 2015 Sentinel-2 data has become available through the European Space Agency. Sentinel-2 offers 10 m resolution images with frequents updates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vegetation phenology derived using the plant phenology index and the normalized difference vegetation index for the Balkan peninsula, south-eastern Europe

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Aleksandra Ivanova; [2019]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; phenology; vegetation; climate change; remote sensing; plant phenology index; PPI; timesat; Balkan peninsula; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This study analyses the performance of the satellite derived Plant Phenology Index (PPI) against the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) for estimating start of season (SOS) and end of season (EOS) of vegetation growth in part of the Balkan Peninsula, Southeastern Europe (2000 – 2016). Results revealed that PPI and NDVI differ considerably; SOS and EOS may diverge by more than one month between the two indices. READ MORE

  5. 5. Global satellite data as proxies for urbanization in flood prone areas

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Florian van Schaik; [2018]
    Keywords : flood exposure; global satellite data; urbanization; remote sensing; sustainable development;

    Abstract : Delta regions are typically characterized by their high population density, low elevation, and risk of flooding. Long term planning and preparation is needed to mitigate the adverse effects of floods. READ MORE
