Jenni's insight:

This has some great graphics that summarise what we have been learning about light, wavelength, our perception of these AND relates this to many real world applications which we can understand in the remote sensing context. It also has some cool funny facts.

Jenni's insight:

This site shows how remote sensing can hit home how devastating the recent fires in Perth were. As a communication tool the resolution and fancy web work are a very effective tool. Have a look at the images before and after and spare a thought for the occupants of the houses and trees. Thanks Karen for scooping this to me.

What It Looks Like When One Satellite Sees Another

What It Looks Like When One Satellite Sees Another | Remote Sensing, Fire History and Biodiversity | Scoop.it
There aren't many U.S. government programs — even space programs — like Landsat. Since the 1970s, the project's satellites have continuously imaged the surface of the Earth, pro...

Don't be fooled by the beaut graphic you see first, read on to learn about the Landsat satellites in orbit and see the real image taken by Landsat 8 of the retired Landsat 5 Satllite.

TERN - Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network: Newsletter 2013 May LTERN Kakadu 3 Parks savanna fires | Remote Sensing, Fire History and Biodiversity | Scoop.it
Jenni's insight:

This brief article introduces a long term project run collaboratively in the NT since 1994. The project focuses on three parks, Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks and uses remote sensing with ground based data capture to report on adaptive approaches to fire management for conservation in regional savannas.

Yet to read this article but this is the third article citing remote sensing in mammal decline but yet to deliver with the use of remote sensing. it is nonetheless interesting read and keep posted for application for remote sensing

Jenni's insight:

I have always like the mantis shrimp and we can see them in Darwin Harbour when reef walking. Some are colourful, others are not, all are WICKED, even more so once you read this!!!!!

A cool image I just found showing Geostationary and Earth orbiting satellites with fire detection and monitoring capabilities. Note how the Polar (earth) orbiting satellite path is much closer to the earth compared to the geostationary path.

Signal and Image Processing for Remote Sensing

Signal and Image Processing for Remote Sensing | Remote Sensing, Fire History and Biodiversity | Scoop.it
Most data from satellites are in image form, thus most books in the remote sensing field deal exclusively with image processing. However, signal processing can contribute significantly in extracting information from the remotely sensed waveforms or time series data. Pioneering the combination of the two processes, Signal and Image Processing for Remote Sensing provides a balance between the role of signal processing and image processing in remote sensing.Featuring contributions from worldwide experts, this book emphasizes mathematical approaches. Divided into two parts, Part I examines signal processing for remote sensing and Part II explores image processing. Not limited to the problems with data from satellite sensors, the book considers other sensors which acquire data remotely, including signals and images from infrasound, seismic, microwave, and satellite sensors. It covers a broader scope of issues in remote sensing information processing than other books in this area. With rapid technological advances, the mathematical techniques provided will far outlast the sensor, software and hardware technologies. Focusing on methodologies of signal processing and image processing in remote sensing, this book discusses unique techniques for dealing with remote sensing problems.
Jenni's insight:

This awesome book has some enchanting chapter titles which far supersede the amazing graphics on the cover. The chapters are arranged in two parts, the first relating to Signal Processing and the second to Image Processing which cover topics such as "Relating Time-Series of Meteorological and Remote Sensing Indices to Monitor Vegetation Moisture Dynamics" and "Quality assessment of Remote Sensing Multi Band Optical Images" respectively. While highly technical many of the concepts are merely an extension of what we are covering in class (note the extensions are much more daunting than any of those faced by contestants on "The Block, Fans vs Faves")

Tropical Savannas CRC - PhD projects complete - Carl Menges - Radar and remote sensing

Jenni's insight:

This project describes the use of Radar and Optical sensors for the seasonal monitoring of savanna ecosystems, including vegetation structure, in relation to fire, one of the key features of the savanna landscape. This article provides a particularly good synthesis of methods applied, obstacles faced (speckle, back scatter), application of results and list of publications produced through the PhD project.

Culture, Ecology and Economy of Fire Management in North Australian Savannas

Culture, Ecology and Economy of Fire Management in North Australian Savannas | Remote Sensing, Fire History and Biodiversity | Scoop.it
This engaging volume explores the management of fire in one of the world's most flammable landscapes: Australia's tropical savannas, where on average 18% of the landscape is burned annually. Impacts have been particularly severe in the Arnhem Land Plateau, a center of plant and animal diversity on Indigenous land. Culture, Ecology and Economy of Fire Management in North Australian Savannas documents a remarkable collaboration between Arnhem Land's traditional landowners and the scientific community to arrest a potentially catastrophic fire-driven decline in the natural and cultural assets of the region - not by excluding fire, but by using it better through restoration of Indigenous control over burning. This multi-disciplinary treatment encompasses the history of fire use in the savannas, the post-settlement changes that altered fire patterns, the personal histories of a small number of people who lived most of their lives on the plateau and, critically, their deep knowledge of fire and how to apply it to care for country. Uniquely, it shows how such knowledge and commitment can be deployed in conjunction with rigorous formal scientific analysis, advanced technology, new cross-cultural institutions and the emerging carbon economy to build partnerships for controlling fire at scales that were, until this demonstration, thought beyond effective intervention. In 12 multi-authored chapters, the book documents key challenges and novel options for addressing chronic landscape-scale fire management issues in north Australian savannas through development of collaborative, cross-cultural "two toolkit" approaches, and commercially supported environmental services programs.
