People and pix els in the Sahel: a study linking coarse-resolution remote sensing observations to land users’ per ceptions of their changing environment in Senegal. Ecology and Society 19 (3): Using coarse remote sensing radar observations to control the trajectory of a simple Sahelian land surface model January Remote Sensing of Environment 94(2) Written by world renowned scientists, this book provides an excellent overview of a wide array of methods and techniques for the processing and analysis of multitemporal remotely sensed images.

These methods and techniques include change detection, multitemporal data fusion, coarse-resolution. Due to the coarse spatial resolution (> m) of synoptic sensors, remote sensing monitors seasonal dynamics of the vegetated land surface that often includes multiple types of vegetation mixed with other scene objects, such as soil, water, and human by: Remote sensing reflectance (R rs) classification of coastal waters is a useful tool to monitor environmental processes and manage marine environmental resources.

This study presents classification work for data sets that were collected in the Yellow Sea during six cruises (spring and autumn, ; summer and winter, /; and spring and.

Radiometric Resolution Every time an image is acquired by a sensor, its sensitivity to the magnitude of the electromagnetic energy determines the radiometric resolution.

The finer the radiometric resolution of a sensor, the more sensitive it is to detecting small differences in reflected or emitted energy.
