The study investigated the use of aerial photographs, acquired in 1950 and1991, for assessing the temporal dynamics of mangroves along the WestAlligator River in Australia's Northern Territory. For both years,mangrove extent was mapped using an unsupervised classification of thedigital orthomosaic and Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), or height maps,of the(More)
The joint processing of remote sensing data acquired from sensors operating at different wavelengths has the potential to significantly improve the operation of global forest mapping and monitoring systems. This paper presents an analysis of the forest discrimination properties of Landsat TM and ALOS-PALSAR data when considered as a combined source of(More)
In this paper, the use of airborne polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) for retreiving information on the structure and biomass of mangroves in the Pacific (Australia) and Atlantic (French Guiana) oceanic regions is considered. The study makes a comparison between the biomass and structure of the different communities and how these impact on the SAR(More)
Consistent estimation of carbon stocks at national level requires the integration of wall-to-wall, time-series satellite and in situ data of forest area, type and change. In 2008, the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) initiated the Forest Carbon Tracking (FCT) task to address concerns over the lack of standardised methods for the processing and generation(More)
ALOS PALSAR data is used to analyse the flood dynamics of two semi-arid river systems and to characterise and define wetland typologies that result from infrequent and highly variable river flood regimes. The two sites, the Gwydir and the Paroo rivers, are both located within the Murray Darling Basin of eastern Australia. The methods developed have the(More)
