  1. 1. Land-use and land-cover dynamics and rural livelihood perspectives, in the semi-arid areas of Central Rift Valley of Ethiopia

    Author : Efrem Garedew; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Global environmental changes in climate, land-use and bio-diversity are increasingly on top of scientific and political agenda. The impacts of climate change are manifested on all dimensions of food security: availability, accessibility, utilization and stability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Monitoring biodiversity in cultural landscapes: development of remote sensing- and GIS-based methods

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Science, Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science

    Author : Jonas Dalmayne; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Remote sensing; statistical modeling; spatial scales; partial least squares; support vector machines; grazed grasslands; LULC; HySpex; Worldview-2; Landsat; heterogeneity; landscape complexity; plant species diversity;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I explore the relationships between structural and compositional landscape properties, and species diversity, using remotely sensed data on a variety of spatial scales. The thesis shows that increased landscape heterogeneity, measured using environmental and spectral variables that were used both separately and combined, is generally positively related to plant species richness.

  3. 3. Remote Sensing of Urbanization and Environmental Impacts

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jan Haas; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geodesy and Geoinformatics; Geodesi och geoinformatik; Remote Sensing; Urbanization; Land Use Land Cover LULC ; Environmental Impact; Landscape Metrics; Ecosystem Services; Geomatik; Geomatics;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to establish analytical frameworks to map urban growth patterns with spaceborne remote sensing data and to evaluate environmental impacts through Landscape Metrics and Ecosystem Services. Urbanization patterns at regional scale were evaluated in China's largest urban agglomerations and at metropolitan scale in Shanghai, Stockholm and Beijing using medium resolution optical satellite data.
