A methodology for monitoring wetlands for fisheries using NOAA AVHRR LAC thermal data
Frequent baseline data on wetlands are essential for assessing fishery potential and for a host of hydrologic and environmental applications. Remote sensing is the only tool which can be used to provide those data at frequent intervals and economically. Thus an operative methodology based on the thermal inertia difference between dry and wet lands has been developed from NOAA (National Oceanic and... more
