Remote sensing data have also been integrated with point-based biophysical and biochemical observations into ecological modeling, in order to understand ecosystems in a physically explicit manner. The remote sensing data can be directly used as a model input, or indirectly used to calibrate model parameters and/or validate model outputs.

Description: This is a book about how ecologists can integrate remote sensing and GIS in their daily work.

It will allow ecologists to get started with the application of remote sensing and to understand its potential and limitations. Remote sensing plays an important role in the study of complex environmental interactions between natural and social systems, and has been used widely to quantify and map ecosystem properties and functions and infer ecosystem processes through a combination of existing instruments and data (Chopra et al.,Ustin et al.,Chambers et.

The advanced techniques like remote sensing, global positioning system (GPS) and geographic information system (GIS) can be of great use for their assessment, management and monitoring.

Keeping all the above facts in view, a Remote Sensing and Geographical Information System (GIS) based study was carried out to generate spatial and temporal information about Harike wetland ecosystem; its land use/land cover (LULC), water spread and water quality, and also the Author: Sukhdeep Singh, Anil Bhardwaj, V.K.
