Estimating leaf area index (LAI) of gum tree (Eucalyptus grandis X camaldulensis) using remote sensing imagery and LiCor-2000.
The use of remotely sensed data to estimate forest attributes involves the acquisition of ground forest data. Recently the acquisition of ground data (field based) to estimate leaf area index (LAI) and biomass are becoming ...
Linking thermal variability and change to urban growth in Harare Metropolitan City using remotely sensed data.
Urban growth, which involves Land Use and Land Cover Changes (LULCC), alters land surface thermal properties. Within the framework of rapid urban growth and global warming, land surface temperature (LST) and its elevation ...
Modelling the potential distribution of bramble (Rubus Cuneifolius) in the KwaZulu-Natal, Drakensberg, South Africa.
Invasive Alien Plant (IAP) invasions have been attracting increasing attention as a result of their substantial effects on native ecosystems. Hence, tools for explaining and predicting IAP distributions have been increasingly ...
Remote sensing of gully erosion in the communal lands of Okhombe Valley, Drakensberg, South Africa.
Abstract available in PDF file.
Spatial-temporal mapping of Parthenium (P. HysterophoruL) in the Mtubatuba municipality, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Detecting and mapping the occurrence, spread, and abundance of Alien Invasive Plants (AIPs) have recently gained substantial attention, globally. Therefore, the present study aims to assess remote sensing application for ...
Modelling biomass of the rehabilitation forest around the Buffelsdraai landfill site using remote sensing data, Durban, South Africa.
Forests have important roles in ecosystem service provisions and maintenance of the global carbon cycle hence they are one of the main subjects of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change which recommends strategies ...
Using remote sensing to estimate the impacts of wattle species on native grass vegetation.
This study was stimulated by the long standing challenge of the lack of suitable satellite data with optimal temporal, spectral, and spatial resolutions to monitor rangelands. The study, therefore, sought to evaluate the ...
The use of satellite remote sensing to determine the spatial and temporal distribution of surface water on the eastern shores of Lake St. Lucia.
The Eastern Shores of Lake St Lucia forms part of the ecologically important Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, designated a World Heritage Site in 1999. The landscape is characterised by surface water, a high water table and ...
A spatially explicit approach for analysing the landscape pattern of urban vegetation using remotely sensed data and its impacts on urban surface temperature.
The landscape pattern of urban green spaces and vegetation plays a significant role in supplying essential benefits and ecological services including sequestering and storing carbon, purification of air and water, ...
