      Remote sensing for sustainable forest management / Steven E. Franklin. book with its focus on remote sensing in forestry is viewed in this positive light. Resources, University of Waterloo.   Forest management based on accurate forest inventory and assessment has profound implications in forest health issues of today. The focus of this proposal is on the development of remote sensing tools that will improve forest resources estimates and forest fire risk assessment. This goal provides the opportunity to greatly strengthen the case for the need of accurate forest resources.

        Remote sensing is the science of obtaining information about objects or areas from a distance, typically from aircraft or satellites. A Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) image created with data collected by NOAA's National Geodetic Survey. REMOTE SENSING AND GIS APPLICATION FOR FOREST RESERVE DEGRADATION PREDICTION AND MONITORING Ayoola AKINGBOGUN, Oloyede KOSOKO and Dk ABORISADE BACKGROUND INFORMATION Pressures on forest especially in the tropical world to provide economic resources have been increasing rapidly as a consequence of burgeoning population in the region.

      Indian Institute of Remote Sensing, Dehradun has taken up a number of studies in the fields of geology, water resources, forestry, agriculture, urban settlement, etc., over the last decade. The book summarises the work carried out in different disciplines, illustrated with tables and figures and a host of relevant references. William Emery, Adriano Camps, in Introduction to Satellite Remote Sensing, Abstract. Satellite remote sensing of the land plays a critical role in many aspects such as the exploration of mineral resources, the monitoring of floods and droughts, soil moisture, vegetation, deforestation, forest decline, forest fires, carbon storage, or land cover, road monitoring, and urban planning.
