An expert overview of remote sensing as applied to forests and other vegetation

In Advances in Remote Sensing for Forest Monitoring, a team of distinguished researchers delivers an expansive and  insightful discussion of the latest research on remote sensing  technologies as they relate to the monitoring of forests, plantations,  and other vegetation. The authors also explore the use of unmanned  aerial vehicles and drones, as well as multisource and multi-sensor data  – such as optical, SAR, LIDAR, and hyperspectral data. 

The  book draws on the latest data and research to show how remote sensing  solutions are being used in real-world settings. It offers contributions  from researchers and practitioners from a wide variety of backgrounds  and geographical regions to provide a diverse and global set of  perspectives on the subject. 

Readers will also find: 

  • A thorough introduction to forest monitoring using remote sensing including recent advances in remote sensing technology
  • Comprehensive  explorations of sustainable forest management to enhance ecosystem  services and livelihood security using a geospatial approach
  • Case studies of monitoring the biochemical and biophysical parameters of forests, including carotene and xanthophyll content 
  • Practical advice on how to apply machine learning tools to remote sensing data

Perfect  for postgraduates, lecturers, and researchers in the fields of  environmental science, forestry, and natural resource management, Advances in Remote Sensing for Forest Monitoring will also earn a place in the libraries of professionals and researchers working with remote sensing technology.
