LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is a remote sensing technology that uses light in the form of pulses to measure the range between a sensor and the Earth’s surface. Recent increase in availability of

In the tourism studies literature, wilderness has been addressed from two perspectives. From the first, human, perspective wilderness is a social, subjective construction that exists only in the mind of its users. From the

Local-scale flooding (LSF) is usually characterized by much less severe damage compared to extreme flood events; however, it does have marked local environmental influence, especially when it is characterized by regular and frequent occurrence

For over two decades nighttime satellite imagery from the Operational Linescan System (OLS) has been used to detect impervious surfaces. However, OLS-based maps suffer from the sensor’s coarse resolution (2.7 km/pixel), overglow, and saturation in

(2016) The influence of filtration and decomposition window size on the thresholdvalue and accuracy of land-cover classification of polarimetric SAR images, International Journal of Remote Sensing, 37:1, 212-228, doi: 10.1080/01431161.2015.1125548

In this study we use ALOS PALSAR satellite data to classify land cover using a decision tree algorithm. We apply polarimetric decomposition methods to coherence and covariance matrices obtained from the data and then

In this letter, we apply the multifractal formalism to land cover change detection on very high spatial resolution data. Specifically, multifractal spectra are determined and, with modifications, are used as an initial general indicator

The spatial resolution of remote sensing instruments installed onboard satellites is one of the key factors for accurate estimations of cloud amount. In general terms, the larger the instantaneous field of view (IFOV), the

Surface-based and satellite-based observations remain the fundamental source of cloud amount data for climatologists. However, both data sets show inconsistency related to the interpretation of instantaneous cloud detection, whether measured using the okta scale

Although natural values are crucial for most of outdoor activities, they are rarely included into tourism accounts. Balmford et al.1 estimate the global value of tourism in natural protected areas as USD 600 billion
