Wetland inundation is crucial to the survival and prosperity of fauna and flora communities in wetland ecosystems. Even small changes in surface inundation may result in a substantial impact on the wetland ecosystem characteristics and function. This study presented a novel method for wetland inundation mapping at a subpixel scale in a typical wetland(More)
In mountainous areas, surface solar radiation (SSR) exhibits high spatiotemporal variation at different slopes and aspects due to its great topographic relief. To get mountain SSR spatial distribution, remote sensing-based methods have been popularly used, which separate SSR into direct solar radiation, diffuse sky radiation, and adjacent terrain radiation.(More)
Nepal, located in a unique transition zone spanning from plains to mountains and then to the plateau, is characterized by diverse and complex land cover. Based on an object-oriented method and decision tree classifier, a land cover product covering the whole of Nepal in 2010 (hereinafter referred to as the NepalCover-2010) was produced using 30 m-resolution(More)
It is highly desirable to accurately detect the clouds in satellite images before any kind of applications. However, clouds and snow discrimination in remote sensing images is a challenging task because of their similar spectral signature. The shortwave infrared (SWIR, e.g., Landsat TM 1.55–1.75 μm band) band is widely used for the separation of cloud and(More)
