Remote sensing applications for monitoring rangeland vegetation.

Tueller P.T.


Remote sensing techniques hold considerable promise for the inventory and monitoring of natural resources on rangelands. A significant lack of information concerning basic spectral characteristics of range vegetation and soils has resulted in a lack of rangeland applications. The parameters of interest for range condition must be identified and a means of measuring them either directly or indirectly developed. This paper describes an approach to the use of remotely sensed data to accomplish rangeland monitoringLanguage: English
