Summary:
Remote sensing and GIS are increasingly used as tools for monitoring and managing forests. This data is often the primary source of information for understanding forest and landscape level disturbance. The focus of Forest Disturbance and Spatial Pattern: Remote Sensing and GIS Applications is on the application of both remote sensing and GIS technology to forest change and disturbance. The book explores how remote  Read more...
