Remote Sensing of Global Croplands for Food Security

Prasad Thenkabail, John G. Lyon, Hugh Turral, Chandrashekhar Biradar
February 19, 2018

Increases in populations have created an increasing demand for food crops while increases in demand for biofuels have created an increase in demand for fuel crops. What has not increased is the amount of croplands and their productivity. These and many other factors such as decreasing water...

Sea Ice Image Processing with MATLAB®

Qin Zhang, Roger Skjetne
February 16, 2018

The ice concentration data on a global scale are available on a daily basis due to microwave satellite sensors. Image processing for sea ice is vital to estimate the sea ice properties and understand the behavior of sea ice especially on a relatively small scale. Currently, sea ice concentration is...
