Landsat MSS and TM imagery were processed to produce vegetation maps. Further characterization of landscape structure was performed using a GIS and the spatial analysis software, Fragstats. The results of the study indicate that changes in management and land-use practices are strongly influencing landscape patterning. Periodically, Earth Observatory answers reader questions on this blog. Here’s a recent note from Manny J of New York City: “I recall that starting on , the cold did not leave [New York]. Contact.

Remote sensing offers a cost efficient means for delineating wetlands over a large area at different points in time and can provide useful information on wetland characteristics [5, 9, 13, 14].Based on various remote sensing data types, many methods for delineating water bodies have been described [5, 15].Wetland delineation involves most often the use of aerial photographs and airborne or Cited by: We found crustal-thickness variations of nearly 40 km across the Andes.
