Applications of Remote Sensing in Agriculture by M. D. Steven and J. A. Clark (Eds.)

By M. D. Steven and J. A. Clark (Eds.)

Agricultural distant sensing has a huge capability impression on agribusiness and the foreign commodity exchange during the improvement of platforms to watch plants and yields at the nationwide and foreign scale. This quantity experiences the achievements of distant sensing in agriculture, establishes the present state of the art and appears at destiny advancements. the next issues are addressed - possibilities for distant sensing, rules of distant sensing as utilized to agriculture, together with logistic concerns and primary spectral features of crops, the estimation of biomass and productiveness, results of rigidity and its detection, discrimination and tracking and new options in using distant sensing

Model-Based Processing for Underwater Acoustic Arrays

This monograph offers a unified method of model-based processing for underwater acoustic arrays. using actual types in passive array processing isn't really a brand new thought, however it has been used on a case-by-case foundation, and as such, lacks any unifying constitution. This paintings perspectives all such processing equipment as estimation tactics, which then could be unified by way of treating all of them as a sort of joint estimation in response to a Kalman-type recursive processor, which might be recursive both in house or time, reckoning on the applying.

As a first approximation, it can be considered that only the leaves or other plant parts and the soil elements that are directly viewed by a radiometer contribute to the measured radiative temperature (an analysis of the possible error introduced by this approximation will be given later). , Guyot, G.
