In this work we analyse fractal and multifractal characteristics for description and extraction of information from VHR satellite images. We propose the degree of multifractality as a global descriptor of satellite image content and

Peng Y., Kheir R.B., Adhikari K., Malinowski R., Greve M.B., Knadel M., Greve, M.H. (2016) Digital Mapping of Toxic Metals in Qatari Soils Using Remote Sensing and Ancillary Data. Remote Sensing, 8, 1003, doi:10.3390/rs8121003

After decades of mining and industrialization in Qatar, it is important to estimate their impact on soil pollution with toxic metals. The study utilized 300 topsoil (0–30 cm) samples, multi-spectral images (Landsat 8), spectral

Every year thousands of people are displaced by conflicts or natural disasters and often gather in large camps. Knowing how many people have been gathered is crucial for an efficient relief operation. However, it

Kotarba A.Z. (2016) Regional high-resolution cloud climatology based on MODIS cloud detection data, Volume 36, Issue 8 30 June 2016 Pages 3105–3115, doi: 10.1002/joc.4539

Most satellite cloud climatologies come in the form of global, low-resolution datasets: so- called ‘gridded’ Level 3 products, resulting from the reprojection and spatio-temporal aggregation of swath (Level 2) data. Their coarse resolution means

(2015) Evaluation of degree of multifractality for description of high resolution data aquired by Landsat Satellites, Archiwum Fotogrametrii, Kartografii i Teledetekcji 2015, vol. 27, s. 175-184 ISSN 2083-2214, eISSN 2391-9477, doi:10.14681/afkit.2015.013

In the frame of this work six satellite images (at six spectral bands) from Landsat 5, Landsat 7 and Landsat 8 have been analysed. For this purpose 30 meter resolution images showing the regions
