Soil degradation in the form of soil erosion is a serious and continuous environmental problem in Jabi Tehinan Woreda. Uncontrolled land use, deforestation, over cultivation, overgrazing and exploitation of biomass for firewood, construction and other household uses due to increasing population ultimately lead to severe soil erosion. The impact of natural hazards like erosion can be minimized Cited by:   In this study, first, GIS data layer for each parameter (i.e. each soil texture, soil depth, and stoniness) was generated based on using scaled soil map [] and refined by comparing with soil samples collected from 87 plots of known locations (i.e. using GPS) in the study order to validate the overall erosion risk map, erosion survey was also performed for each plot by Cited by:

The range of applications includes land cover and land use mapping, cloud tracking, snow cover mapping and air temperature monitoring, topographic mapping, geological classification and soil erosion modelling. This book will be valuable to both researchers and advanced students of remote sensing and GIS. of remote sensing for rangeland management depends in part on combining the imagery with other spatial data within geographic information systems.

Far from simplifying the relationship between climate and landform, such remote sensing data have reinforced the need for geomorphology to cope with climate change, even in the present-day humid tropics.

REMOTE SENSING BASED DETECTION OF FORESTED WETLANDS: AN EVALUATION OF LIDAR, AERIAL IMAGERY, AND THEIR DATA FUSION by Ashley Elizabeth Suiter B.S., Central Michigan University, A Thesis Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Master of Science Department of Geography and Environmental Resources in the Graduate School.

This book focuses on grassland ecosystem evaluation including vegetation coverage, net primary productivity, carbon sink accounting, and grassland degradation evaluation based on mutual data resource, ecosystem model simulation, remote sensing monitoring and driving mechanism exploration.

In the group of active remote sensing methods, the best method is a backscatter empirical model, which gives a %GSM RMSE and a % correlation between the estimated and the field soil by: Remote sensing (RS) data are used for estimating bio-physical parameters and indices besides cropping systems analysis, and land-use and land-cover estimations during different seasons5,6.

However, RS data alone cannot sug-gest crop suitability for an area unless the data are inte-grated with the site-specific soil and climate data.

In the yearKalaignanapuram beach showed a high erosion rate of m3/year and Vembar beach had endured the Management of coastal erosion using remote sensing.

was calculated for estimating the cost of soil erosion. Two basic data sources were used for evaluating thecost of soil erosion: (1) soil mapping units with the respective composition of Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium and (2) annual soil erosion rate in each soil mapping units.

A flowchart describing the methodology for estimation of cost. This research studies the quantification of soil erosion under different levels of data availability in Wadi Yalamlam.

Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques have been implemented for the assessment of the data, applying the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) for the calculation of the risk of by:   The present study was undertaken to assess the annual rate of soil erosion from the study watershed using distributed information for topography, land use, soil, etc.

Bergsma,Jones and Keech, ) and obtaining model input data (e.g. Morgan and Napela,Stephens et al., ). Starting in with the launch of Landsat-1, satellite imagery has Cited by: Another popular proxy is the intersection of a tidal datum with the coastal profile, known as mean high water (MHW).

Potential data sources for investigating shorelines include historical and aerial photographs, coastal maps, beach surveys, in situ GPS, and a range of remote sensing data. The process of identifying a shoreline involves first selecting and defining an indicator feature, and then detecting the chosen features from the available Size: KB.

Firstly, a gully erosion inventory map (GEIM) with gully locations was obtained from various sources and randomly divided into two groups: A training dataset (70% of the data) and a validation dataset (30% of the data).

Various proximal and remote sensing disciplines such as laboratory and field sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles, and airborne and spaceborne sensors are essential tools, well-suited for surveying large areas and monitoring soil degradation at a high temporal and spatial interval.

Although a variety of rainfall-runoff models are available, selection of a suitable rainfall-runoff model for a given watershed is essential to ensure efficient planning and management of watersheds. Such studies are relatively limited in developing nations, including India.

In this study, rainfall-runoff modeling was carried out using HEC-HMS and WEPP hydrologic models, and remote sensing Cited by:.
